My name’s Guilliean Pacheco.

Hard g.

I’m a creative writer and editor, photographer, web designer, occasional filmmaker, and fangirl.

I earned a Masters of Fine Arts in Creative Writing from the University of San Francisco.

I’m a thirtysomething of the female persuasion. I refer to my heritage as Filipino adjacent. To be clearer, I’m an American of Filipino, Chinese, Spanish, German, and French descent.

I’m a Northern California native, born in Oakland, and subsequently raised in Union City and Modesto. I live in Las Vegas normally, if one can call living in Vegas normal.

Raconteur means storyteller in French; raconteuse is the feminine form.

I randomly quote Futurama, and keep a sonic screwdriver with me for those timey-wimey emergencies.

I was adopted by a Shih Tzu/Poodle mix named Jack on December 26, 2012.

I’m not an ambi-turner.

I write for the ones who see the extraordinary in the mundane.

I refer to my writing aesthetic as “cinematic absurdism.” I’m influenced by Jack Kerouac, Emily Dickinson, Walt Disney, J.K. Rowling, Ray Bradbury, Sandra Cisneros, Billy Wilder, Angela Carter, William Shakespeare, Joan Didion, Alfred Hitchcock, Shirley Jackson, and Rod Serling. And not in that order.
