Nury Vittachi was born in Sri Lanka and raised in UK. He was inspired in his early childhood by his father whose daring writings led his family to leave Sri Lanka in times of an armed rebellion.
Growing up, Nuri had a special talent for digging underneath any story which helped him become very successful with tabloids on Fleet Street of London from where Nury learned many tricks of trade for investigative journalism.
After moving to HK, Nury wrote for gossip corner Lai See and Spice Trader for SCMP where he received lot of applaud for his informative, variegated and creative journalism. Nury also wrote a number of children fiction and non-fiction books. One of his book “The Feng Shui Detective” won many praises for using Eastern culture in explaining a western story. In 2020, Nury wrote a book on HK protests titled “the Other Side of Story” which received several praises and critique. Nury is currently on his way to producing a sequel of this book.
Nury lives in Hong Kong with his English wife and three adopted Chinese children.
