“He was a thinker and an avid writer often delving into the Chinese classics to draw lessons for modern Singapore. His book “Thoughts From A Gilded Cage” was published in 2018. His demise saddens all of us at the SDP. We hold his loved ones in our thoughts and prayers as they go through this difficult time.”

Would it be wrong to put a comma after "writer"?

Thanks.

There is no need to put a comma after "writer".

I would definitely put a comma after "writer", as it would be spoken with a pause there.
