Amy T. Granite is an American journalist based in Portland, Oregon. A Southern California-native, Granite earned her B.A. in Literature and Writing Studies from CSU San Marcos in 2005 and embarked on a decade of decadence, chronicling her life as a pleasure seeker for print and online publications. Hundreds of lifestyle articles, blown-out pants seams and unpaid travel/expense reports later, in 2017 Granite finally accepted a "real job" as a news desk editor in the ever-stormy Pacific Northwest.
