Neil was born and bred in Bridgeton, Glasgow's east-end where he
attended Strathclyde Primary and Riverside Secondary schools.
A proud Brigtonian whose employment took him all over this fair city and
over the years, encouraged by his wife Anne, he started to put his tales
into words. Sadly Anne died 8 years ago and the book was put on hold, but
recently was resurrected when Neil's daughter came across his writings
and urged him to complete it and write a book. This he has done in
memory of Anne.
