Maggie Tiojakin


A journalist and short story writer. Her works have been published both in print and electronic media, such as The Boston Globe, The Jakarta Post Weekender, Asian News Network, Asia One, Femina, et cetera. In 2006, she published a debut collection of short stories titled Homecoming (And Other Stories); followed by a 2007 film-to-novel adaptation, Claudia/Jasmine. Prior to jumpstarting her journalistic career in Jakarta, where she now lives, Maggie had spent six years living the “American life” in Boston, Massachusetts (1999-2005)—and has only recently made the attempts to make sense of those years.1
