George Manville Fenn (1831-1909) wrote over 170 books, sketches, novels and children's stories, and contributed to most of the leading magazines of his day. Born in London, Fenn's early career included work as a teacher and private tutor; then came a complete change when he became a printer, setting up his own press in Lincolnshire and publishing his own magazine, Modern Metre. His first opportunity of a wider circulation occurred when Charles Dickens bought one of his stories for the famous All The Year Round.

As well as his writing, Fenn took an interest in the theatre, becoming drama critic of the Echo and even producing his own farce in 1888. Comedy was one of his stronger talents and he produced many amusing short stories and articles.
