Amy T. Granite is an American journalist currently based in Portland, Oregon. Originally from Southern California, Granite earned her B.A. in Writing Studies and embarked on a decade of decadence, chronicling her life as a pleasure-seeker for print and online publications. Hundreds of lifestyle articles and unpaid expense reports later, it was time to get a "real job." At least for now, Granite has found refuge in the ever-stormy Pacific Northwest where she's a news desk editor at a local TV station.
