Brianna Joy Crump is from Raleigh, North Carolina. She was raised in a house with creative and supportive parents who read to her constantly and encouraged her to use her imagination.


After graduating from college in 2017 with a BA in creative writing, she moved back home to Raleigh and started teaching middle school. In the spring of 2018, she started working on the manuscript that would become The Culled Crown.


Brianna taught for a year before she left to start pursuing her MA in writing. She soon moved to Boiling Springs, North Carolina where she now works for her university as a Graduate Resident Director. Brianna spends most days writing, editing, hanging out with college students, sitting in meetings, talking to readers on Wattpad, and trying to survive graduate school. She has a one-eyed kitten named Ellie Mae, who Brianna classifies as being a demon-cat.


You can find Brianna's books on Wattpad.
