Neil Forsyth was born in Glasgow in 1978. He is the author of six previous books including Other People's Money, his biography of teenage fraudster Elliot Castro which has been published in six countries and is currently being developed as a feature film, and the novels Let Them Come Through and San Carlos which were critically acclaimed in both Britain and the United States. His trilogy of Bob Servant humour books have become cult favourites, likened to the absurdist comedy of Peter Cook and Spike Milligan, and have been adapted by Forsyth for both BBC Radio Four and BBC Television in the BAFTA-nominated sitcom Bob Servant.
