Geanna Culbertson

GEANNA CULBERTSON is the award-winning author of The Crisanta Knight Series.

Since Book One’s release in May 2016, it has won a Mom’s Choice Award for best family-friendly media, an IPPY award for accomplishment in e-books, and a Living Now Choice Award for “best lifestyle and world-changing books” in adventure fiction.

The Crisanta Knight Series is a proud sponsor of Girls on the Run, Los Angeles (GOTRLA). Driven by a heroine who is strong, smart, and bold, The Crisanta Knight Series is happy to be a continuous presence in the GOTRLA community, as both envision “a world where every girl knows and activates her limitless potential.”

The series has been featured in Girls’ Life Magazine as recommended reading for preteen and teen girls. Culbertson is also a regular speaker at schools for an array of age groups (from elementary schools to major universities).

Culbertson is a proud alumna of the University of Southern California where she earned her BA in Public Relations and triple minor degrees in Marketing, Cinematic Arts, and Critical Approaches to Leadership. She is a part of only 1.3% of her graduating class to earn the double distinction of Renaissance Scholar and Discovery Scholar. Her Discovery Scholar thesis “Beauty & the Badass: Origins of the Hero-Princess Archetype” earned her acclaim in the School of Cinematic Arts, and helped fuel her female protagonist focused writing passions.

In addition to authoring The Crisanta Knight Series (set to be eight books with the final release in spring 2021), Culbertson is a full-time manager at a leading industry digital marketing firm, representing over 30 clients across the nation. When Culbertson is not working or writing, she can likely be found performing volunteer work at her local karate studio where she teaches martial arts (she is a black belt), going on adventures with her mother and best friend, and indulging her love of delicious food across the land.
