Lisa Gabriele is a Canadian novelist, television producer and journalist. She was the show runner for Dragons' Den (2006-2012). As novelist, Gabriele is the author of Tempting Faith DiNapoli (2002), The Almost Archer Sisters (2008), and The Winters (2018), an update of Daphne DuMaurier's 1938 classic, Rebecca.

In February 2013, it was revealed on The Current that Gabriele is the actual identity of the pseudonym "L. Marie Adeline," author of the erotic novel S.E.C.R.E.T. (2013). Now a trilogy, the two sequels came out in 2013 and 2014. She was also outed as ghost writer for Kevin O'Leary of Shark Tank and Dragons' Den.

Although neither book is under her name, Gabriele is the only Canadian writer who has had #1 bestsellers in both fiction and non-fiction at the same time—S.E.C.R.E.T. by L. Marie Adeline and Men, Women and Money by Kevin O'Leary.

Under her own name, Gabriele's essays and fiction have appeared in several anthologies, including Dave Eggers' The Best American Nonrequired Reading; Sex and Sensibility; Don’t You Forget About Me; When I Was a Loser; and 2033: The Future of Misbehavior. Her short story, "How to Be a Groupie," was included in the Norton Anthology of Western Literature.

Gabriele's writing has also appeared in the New York Times Magazine, Washington Post, Glamour, Salon, Vice, among other publications.

In addition to Dragon's Den, Gabriele has worked as a director and/or producer for CBC for The Week the Women Went and, from 2003-2006, wrote the CBC radio program The Current. She has also produced or directed programs for the History Channel, the Life Network and Slice TV.  As head of development for Proper Television, she worked on Masterchef Canada in 2015 and 2017.

Nominated for four Geminis, Gabriele has won twice. She also won the Screen Award for best Reality TV show in 2013. She lives in Toronto, where she graduated from Ryerson University's school of journalism in 1992. (Adapted from Wikipedia. Retreived 11/14/2018.)
