Meet Neil

Neil Humphreys grew up on the world’s biggest housing estate in East London. On his first day at school, he took all his clothes off and ran around the nursery. From such an inauspicious beginning, Neil went on to become one of Asia’s best-selling authors.

He has written 26 books, including humorous social commentary titles, crime thrillers, a children’s series and illustrated eco-adventures.

The award-winning writer is also a media columnist, radio and TV host, podcaster and emcee. He gives talks, lectures and workshops on the writing and publishing process.

More importantly, he no longer takes off his clothes in public.


Neil has published 26 books, across many genres, including crime thrillers and illustrated children’s titles.

In 2022, Neil released Bloody Foreigners, the third crime thriller in his Inspector Low series. The novel is an international best-seller.

Public Speaker

A qualified public speaking instructor and former speech and drama teacher, Neil remains one of the most popular public speakers in Singapore.

Whether he’s telling undergraduates about the importance of risk-taking, via his surreal life journey, or discussing his writing process with secondary students,

Neil loves to entertain his audience.

NLB Ambassador
