Lisa Gardner is an American author of fiction. She is the author of 28 novels, including thriller-suspense works such as The Killing Hour, The Next Accident, Catch Me, and most recently Touch & Go. She also has written romance novels using the pseudonym Alicia Scott. With over 22 million books in print, Lisa is published in 30 countries. Four of her novels have been adapted as TV movies.

Her work as a research analyst for a consulting firm spurred her interest in police procedure, cutting edge forensics and twisted plots—a fascination she parlayed into more than 16 bestselling suspense novels, including the 2013 Touch & Go (see her full bibliography below).

Raised in Hillsboro, Oregon, she graduated from the city's Glencoe High School. As evidenced by her 2003 work, "The Killing Hour," Gardner has been heavily influenced by the box office smash and best selling book The Silence of the Lambs. Her novel Gone is set in a fictionalized version of Tillamook, Oregon. As of 2007, Gardner lives in New Hampshire.
