Lissa Marie Redmond was born and raised in Western New York.
As a detective, she handled a number of high-profile cases and appeared on numerous television shows including Dateline, The Nightmare Next Door and Murder by Numbers. After spending twenty-two years in law enforcement, including stints as a detective in both the Special Victims Unit and Cold Case Homicide squad, she retired to pursue a “normal” life.
She decided to become a writer instead.
Lissa writes the Cold Case Investigation series. A Full Cold Moon is her latest book in the series. The Secrets They Left Behind, a new standalone thriller, came out in April from Crooked Lane Books. Her short fiction has appeared in numerous anthologies, Down & Out: The Magazine and Mystery Tribune.
She lives with her husband, raises her kids, pampers her puppy and spoils her ungrateful cat. She writes about the things that kept her up at night, staring at the ceiling in the dark, making her ask herself, “What if?”
And she invites you to come along.
