JAZMYN WRIGHT grew up in the suburbs of the San Francisco Bay Area, in a small enough town, in a conservative enough Christian home, such that she always wanted to get out and see the world. Dropping out of college, she joined the Navy post-9/11. Jazmyn served honorably as a Fire Controlman working on state-of-the-art weapon systems while deployed overseas as part of Operation Enduring Freedom.
After an injury and subsequent separation from the military, she went on to earn her BA in African American and African Studies with a minor in Film Studies from UC Davis, and her MFA in Film and Television from UCLA.
An avid screenwriter, her writing is informed by her myriad life experiences. She writes about identity, mental health, gender, class and race, set within her favorite genres of science fiction, thriller, and murder mystery.
Jazmyn currently works as a coordinator on the NBC/Amazon series “Forget Normal” as well as for the Writers Guild Foundation's Veterans Writing Project. She resides in Los Angeles with her quarantine-adopted pup Bailey and pet plant Larry.
