Jesse Q Sutanto grew up going back and forth from Indonesia and Singapore. She has a BA in English Lit from Berkeley and a Masters in Creative Writing from Oxford, although she still has yet to find a way of saying that without sounding really obnoxious. Her debut novel, THE OBSESSION, will be out in Spring 2021 from Sourcebooks. It follows the classic love story of boy meets girl, boy stalks girl, girl gets revenge.
