Neil Munro

Neil Munro was born in 1863, the illegitimate son of an Inverary kitchen maid. After leaving school, he worked for a spell in a lawyer's office before leaving the Highlands for a career in journalism, eventually becoming the editor of the Glasgow Evening News. He is best known for his comic tales about Para Handy, but he also produced several historical and contemporary novels, as well as poetry and non-fiction. He died in 1930.
