Lisa Scottoline

"We authors don’t have the keys, and the drawbridge is not up. Everyone is welcome to write, and that is what America is all about, to me. Diversity of voice, freedom of expression, and everybody talking to each other, sharing stories."

Lisa Scottoline believes in writing what you know, and she puts so much of herself into her books. She is the bestselling and award-winning author of thirty-three novels, including her latest work, Eternal – her first-ever historical novel.

Lisa has over 30 million copies of her books in print and is published in over 35 countries. Janet Maslin of The New York Times applauds Lisa’s books as “punchy, wisecracking thrillers” whose “characters are earthy, fun and self-deprecating” and distinguishes her as having “one of the best-branded franchise styles in current crime writing.” One of her books, Look Again, was named “One of the Best Novels of the Year” by The Washington Post and one of the best books in the world as part of World Book Night 2013.

Lisa has served as president of Mystery Writers of America and has taught a course that she developed, “Justice and Fiction” at the University of Pennsylvania Law School, her alma mater. She is also the author of a weekly column for the Philadelphia Enquirer, entitled “Chick Wit,” which she co-writes with her daughter Francesca.

She lives in the Philadelphia area with an array of disobedient pets, and she wouldn’t have it any other way.
