There isn’t much room for any more awards on Lisa Gardner’s shelf – her 20 successful novels, which have been published across 30 countries, have nabbed coveted prizes like Best Hardcover Novel from the International Thriller Writers, and the Grand Prix des Lectrices de Elle in France.
If you ask Gardner where she gets her ideas from, she might say, “I suspect I was dropped on my head a lot as a child.” A self-described research junkie, Gardner managed to research her way from a food server to research analyst to one of the best-known and best-loved authors of the police procedural in the world, selling her first novel at the age of just 20.
Her prolific writing means that fans can choose between her FBI Profiler series, her Detective D.D. Warren series, her Tessa Leoni series and her standalone novels, all of which have been released to critical acclaim. 4 of her books have been made into movies and she received the Silver Bullet Award in 2017 for her charitable work.
