A FORMER Paisley policeman turned author has released his latest novel of comedy fiction.
Harry Morris worked for Strathclyde Police for 29 years and spent many of them in Paisley.
And he has turned his life on the beat into a successful career as an author of the much-loved Harry the Polis series of books.
The sixth in the series – Ah Cannae Tell a Lie – is doing well.
Harry said: “I know Paisley well because I used to work there when I was with the police.
“The first few Harry the Polis books were based on real-life incidents and stories from working in Paisley.
“They’re just wee stories and some of them are true stories from the job and anecdotes other people have told me, they’re wee tales.
“I always do very well at WH Smith on the High Street in Paisley.
“I just want to give people a good laugh and it always seems to do well.”
Harry combines his writing with being a stand-up comedian and performs his routine across Scotland, England and even in Spain.
