Hi there. My name is Melissa De Silva. I’m what I call a “heritage” Eurasian, people who have been of mixed European and Asian descent since colonial times in Asia.
I write stories about the Eurasian experience, past, present and even future (see my upcoming story about the last two Eurasians, set an imaginary future Singapore, in the excellent LONTAR: Journal of Southeast Asian Speculative Fiction out in October 2016, www.lontarjournal.com).
Eurasians in Singapore is dedicated to our community’s stories— big, small, sad, scary, uncomfortable even—so we can remember and celebrate our identity as Eurasians.
