New York Times and USA Today Bestselling author Lisa Renee Jones is the author of the highly acclaimed INSIDE OUT SERIES which has sold to twelve countries for translation with negotiations in process for more, and has now been optioned for a cable television show, to be produced by, and in development with, Suzanne Todd (Alice in Wonderland).
In 2013 Lisa signed on for 2 more books and 3 novellas in her Inside Out Series, again in a major deal with Gallery books. She is represented by Louise Fury with The Bent Agency and Shari Smiley at Resolution for Film and TV. The series continues to hit the USA Today and New York Times lists.
In 2014 she sold her self-published first New Adult series, The Secret Life Of Amy Bensen, to Gallery books, after it spend 8 weeks on the USA Today and also hit the New York Times. An additional book and novella will be published directly through Gallery.
Her Tall, Dark and Deadly Series was on the New York Times list 8 weeks and the USA TODAY list 10 weeks. The series has sold more than 700k copies.
In 2015, Lisa penned another major deal with Gallery books for the Careless Whisper series. A spinoff of the INSIDE OUT series with 3 books and 2 novellas. She also has another project she will be working on this coming year.
Since beginning her publishing career in 2007, Lisa has published more than 40 books with publishers such as Simon and Schuster, Avon, Kensington, Harlequin, NAL, Berkley and Ellora’s Cave, as well as crafting a successful indie career. Booklist says that Jones’s suspense truly sizzles with an energy similar to FBI tales with a paranormal twist by Julie Garwood or Suzanne Brockmann.
Prior to publishing, Lisa owned multi-state staffing agency that was recognized many times by The Austin Business Journal and also praised by Dallas Women Magazine. In 1998 LRJ was listed as the #7 growing women owned business in Entrepreneur Magazine.
On the Inside Out Series....
Lisa has created a beautiful, complicated, and sensual world that is filled with intrigue and suspense. Sara’s character is strong, flawed, complex, and sexy - a modern girl we all can identify with. I’m thrilled to develop a television show that will tell Sara’s whole story - her life, her work, her friends, and her sexuality.
- Suzanne Todd, Producer of Alice in Wonderland
