Welcome to jeanspraker.com. I hope you like it here.
According to SEO experts, every website is supposed to have an About page. Thus, this page exists. The problem is deciding what to tell you.
When I tell people I am an editor, they think I am a rule-following, writer-hating zombie hell bent on eating the brains of innocent, young writers.
That’s not true. I love my writers, especially with a nice Chianti.
I prefer to think of myself as the editor who wears orange nail polish. I know the rules and enjoy breaking them—when needed.
I drink a lot of coffee. In India, I preferred Starbucks. I collect mugs from around the world. This one is from Korea.
I love my Amazon Kindle. It helps me read diverse books and stay up to date with the latest Indian bestsellers, like Gujarat Files.
If I like a book, I review it. The Adivasi Will Not Dance by Hansda Sowvendra Shankar was one of my favorite books last year.
I am an alumna of Anita Nair’s Anita’s Attic writing program in Bangalore, India. These are my batchmates.
While in Bangalore, I finished the first draft of my book and drank a lot of filter coffee.
I love Indian food and have a particular love for South Indian breakfasts. I highly recommend the masala dosas at MTR.
I don’t update this blog as often as I should. I have been told that websites are obsolete, and the real action is on social media. You can find me on these channels:
I know I should probably be on Tumblr and Snapchat, but I’m not. Technically, I have a YouTube channel, but I have only posted one video to it. You should watch this one instead:
Poor Peanut! The things he does to help me get more likes.
I have recently returned to the U.S. after living in Asia and the Middle East for five years.
I am currently living in South Carolina but want to relocate to Philadelphia. I would also consider New York and Seattle.
