Low Kay Hwa
Low Kay Hwa, born in 1985, is the youngest bestselling author in Singapore, having been on many Singapore bestsellers lists (major bookstores and national newspapers) together with international authors like Jodi Picoult and Nicholas Sparks. In his country, he is the only local writer to have entered the list for years.
In 2012, he has over 117,000 "Likes" in his Facebook Page and over 10,000 double opt-in subscribers. He is often invited to schools to give talks and is a mentor to many aspiring authors.
He has been writing since seven and published his first novel when he was seventeen. He is currently pursuing a B.A. (Honours) in English Language and Literature, and will be getting his M.A. in English by 2015.
Low Kay Hwa prefers to keep a low profile (in his words, "Let my books do the talking"), and therefore does not show his face online except for newspaper and magazine articles. His books are often sleeper hits; they usually stay in the normal bookstores shelves for one to two months before reaching the bestsellers lists through positive word-of-mouth marketing by his readers.
