Biography

Lisa Jackson

Lisa Jackson is the #1 New York Times bestselling author of more than 85 novels, including AFRAID TO DIE, TELL ME, YOU DON'T WANT TO KNOW, RUNNING SCARED, WITHOUT MERCY, MALICE and SHIVER. She is also the co-author of the Colony Series, co-written with her sister, Nancy Bush. There are over 20 million copies of Lisa Jackson’s books in print in 20 languages.

Before she became a nationally bestselling author, Lisa Jackson was a mother struggling to keep food on the table by writing novels, hoping against hope that someone would pay her for them. Today, neck deep in murder, her books appear on The New York Times, the USA Today and the Publishers Weekly national bestseller lists.

With over 30 bestsellers to her name, Lisa Jackson is a master of taking readers to the edge of sanity --- and back --- in novels that buzz with dangerous secrets and deadly passions. She continues to be fascinated by the minds and motives of both her killers and their pursuers --- the personal, the professional and downright twisted. As she builds the puzzle of relationships, actions, clues, lies and personal histories that haunt her protagonists, she must also confront the fear and terror faced by her victims, and the harsh and enduring truth that, in the real world, terror and madness touch far too many lives and families.
