Jesse Q Sutanto LoungingI grew up going back and forth between Jakarta and Singapore and consider both places my homes. I swear in Singlish, gossip in Indonesian, and write in American. I got my Bachelors from the University of California, Berkeley, a place I still long for a lot, and my Masters from the University of Oxford, a place which I long for never. (Nothing against Oxford, which is gorgeous. It's just, man, that weather. English weather is really as bad as everyone says.) 

I am passionate about women's rights and diversity in publishing. I regularly do giveaways where I critique queries or the first few pages, and I am especially interested in helping writers from marginalized communities. If you are a writer from a marginalized community, do hit me up! I love hearing from other writers, even if it's just to say a quick hello.
