Theodora Sarah Abigail is a young writer and teen mother currently living in Jakarta, and she prefers to be called Ebi.

Her family has lived in Indonesia for generations after moving from China; however, she was raised in the USA. This strange blend of cultural perspectives is often the focus of her work.

Her first book of essays, ‘In The Hands Of A Mischievous God’, was published by Gramedia in 2017.
