2013 PPW Conference Bios - Lisa Renee Jones

This is the first post in our new series, 2013 PPW Conference Bios, where we'll be bringing you information on the authors, agents and editors who will be speaking and/or taking pitches this year.

Lisa Renee Jones

Lisa Renee Jones was once known for being the owner of the multi-state staffing agency, LRJ Staffing, her Austin-based business. She received accolades from Austin Business Journal, Dallas Women Magazine, and Entrepreneur Magazine.

However, in 2003 she sold this business, diving into her writing. Her books cover romance, suspense and even paranormal, and she is now a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author, with more than thirty novels and novellas in print.

Most recently, Lisa's Inside Out Trilogy, erotic suspense with a paranormal twist, was not only picked up for international distribution, but will now be a series on STARZ, optioned just this month. Suzanne Todd, of Alice in Wonderland and Austin Powers fame, will produce. The first book in the trilogy, If I Were You, will be released in paperback on March 12, 2013.

If you can't wait for April to meet Lisa, she can be found at our free Saturday Write Your Heart Out conference teaser this Saturday, February 23, from 1-5 at the Colorado Springs Marriott. For more information visit and go to the Events tab. RSVP required.

You can find Lisa online in multiple places, and she loves to hear from her fans!
