Lisa Gardner Sends D.D. Warren to the Writers’ Police Academy

Lisa Gardner sends D.D. Warren to 2016 WPA

Lisa Gardner is a writer who tackles research head-on, and she’s so serious about learning proper police procedure and forensics that, for two years in a row, she attended the wildly popular Writers’ Police Academy.

Lisa strongly believes in and continues to support the event in many ways, including helping me secure our 2016 guest of honor/keynote speaker, who, by the way, is an international bestselling author who’s known as a master of suspense writing.

Detailing the exciting and heart-thumping experiences had at the Writers’ Police Academy is nothing new. Articles about the event can be found all across social media, blogs, and national print media. After all, no other event in the world can compare to the WPA. One article, though, stands out a bit and it was written by, of course, Lisa Gardner. In the piece, she describes how and why her book, Crash and Burn was inspired by the Writers’ Police Academy.

Lisa Gardner: Starting with the Technicalities

Actually, Lisa, regards the Writers’ Police Academy so highly that she has now sent her protagonist, D.D. Warren, to attend as an instructor. You can read D.D.’s recap of the experience, her most intimidating adventure to date, in Gardner’s latest release (the ebook released today), 3 Truths and a Lie.


Lisa treated me to a preview of 3 Truths and I have to say it is a wonderful read, which is a standard for Lisa Gardner. No surprise there. So please, do yourself a favor and grab a copy of the book and then tag along with D.D. Warren as her workshop for writers turns into one of her most twisted cases—a case that involves a seedy motel room, drugs, prostitution . . . and a severed leg.
