Lisa Gardner (born 1972) is a #1 New York Times bestselling American novelist. She is the author of more than 20 suspense novels, published in more than 30 countries. She began her career writing romantic suspense under the pseudonym Alicia Scott, before the publication of her breakout domestic thriller, The Perfect Husband, in 1997. TV and movie credits include At the Midnight House (CBS), Instinct to Kill, The Survivors Club (CBS), and Hide (TNT) as well as personal appearances on TruTV's Murder by the Book and CNN.

Biography[edit]

Raised in Hillsboro, Oregon, she graduated from the city's Glencoe High School.[1] Her novel Gone is set in a fictionalized version of Tillamook, Oregon.[1]

In the mid-1990s, she was a research analyst in Boston with Mercer Management (now Oliver Wyman). She credited her long days doing research for giving her the skills needed to follow a line of investigation while learning new topics.[2]

As of 2014, Gardner lives in New England with her family. She is known for her work with animal rescue and at-risk children, receiving the Silver Bullet Award from the International Thriller Writers in 2017 in honor of her efforts.
