Ashley Jean Granillo is a Mexican-American writer working as an adjunct instructor of English and Non-Credit English.


While she has her BA and MA in Creative Writing from California State University Northridge, she got her start as a writer at the age of five when she illustrated and published her first “book,” A SPECIAL TREE GROWS IN PACOIMA, through Telfair Elementary's Book Buddy program. She is an MFA candidate for UCR Palm Desert's program.


When she isn’t writing, Ashley Jean likes to pursue other creative outlets such as music and art. Occasionally, she can be found skipping her way down Disneyland's Main Street, chasing each one of her new dreams
