Lisa Gardner

New York Times #1 bestselling crime novelist Lisa Gardner began her career in food service, but after catching her hair on fire numerous times, she took the hint and focused on writing instead. A self-described research junkie, she has parlayed her interest in police procedure, criminal minds and twisted plots into a streak of bestselling suspense novels. Her 2010 novel, THE NEIGHBOR, won Best Thriller from the International Thriller Writers. Most recently, she was honored with the Silver Bullet Award for her work with at-risk kids and homeless animals. Lisa loves to hike, travel the world, and yes, read, read, read!

Readers are invited to enter the annual "Kill a Friend, Maim a Buddy" Sweepstakes, where they can nominate the person of their choice to die in Lisa's latest novel. People have nominated themselves, spouses, bosses. It's cheaper than therapy and twice as much fun! For more details, visit Lisa's website.

Lisa lives in the mountains of New England with her family, as well as three highly spoiled dogs. Her latest novel (February 2019) is NEVER TELL, where Boston Detective D.D. Warren investigates a pregnant wife accused of killing her own husband. D.D. recognizes the wife from another "accidental" shooting sixteen years ago. More interesting, victim-turned-vigilante Flora Dane recognizes the dead husband as being a former associate of her kidnapper, Jacob Ness. What goes on behind closed doors? Someone is determined to never tell...
