New York Times Number One Bestselling Author
Lisa Jackson can’t keep away from murderers, especially serial killers. She’s been helping to kill people everywhere from Savannah and New Orleans to San Francisco and the Pacific Northwest—and now it’s really paid off as her just published novel Fatal Burn is named the number one New York Times paperback bestseller beginning the week of April 2, 2006.
Having made serial killing her business—sort of—she has put her characters through the wringer. They find themselves up to their necks in danger, staring death, usually a pretty gory one, right in the face. Her obsessive curiosity has proven contagious and her audience keeps growing from book to book, as her novels gain ever greater recognition at the top of bestseller lists nationally.
It all began when Lisa and her sister, novelist Nancy Bush, both mothers, first sat down determined to write, and to be published.
They did and they were.
While initially they wrote together, both later began to move in different directions. Born and raised in Oregon, and still living in the Pacific Northwest, Lisa has ended up on national bestseller lists, while Nancy’s writing has expanded to include not just her own novels, such as her recent Candy Apple Red, but also a career as a writer for one of television’s leading soap operas.
In a nutshell, who is Lisa Jackson? Before she became a nationally bestselling author, she was a woman struggling to keep food on the table by writing romance novels, hoping against hope that someone would pay her for them. Today, neck deep in murder, her books appear on The New York Times, the USA Today, and the Publishers Weekly national bestseller lists. As those who know her can attest, this funny, smart woman who enjoys making the hair stand up on the back of her readers’ necks, is a mom, a daughter, a workaholic and an amazing writer.
