Latest Book Projects

A longtime book collaborator and ghostwriter, Lisa Dickey has helped clients write 19 published nonfiction books, including nine New York Times Best Sellers.

Her most recent collaborations include Where the Light Enters by former second lady Jill Biden, which debuted at number 10 on the New York Times best seller list. In this “charming memoir” (PW) of “sincere and uplifting stories” (Kirkus), Dr. Biden movingly describes building–and rebuilding–the Biden family. Lisa also worked with Democratic presidential candidate John K. Delaney on his 2018 release, The Right Answer: How We Can Unify Our Divided Nation.


Lisa began her career in 1995 in St. Petersburg, Russia, writing articles for The Moscow Times and USA Today. Returning to the United States in late 1996, she worked with renowned tech journalist Kara Swisher on her first book, AOL.COM.

Over the next two decades, Lisa worked with high-profile clients such as Patrick Swayze, Gavin Newsom, Cissy Houston, Herbie Hancock, Jane Lynch, Cathie Black, and Whitewater partner Susan McDougal. Her collaborations have spanned a vast array of topics, from politics to business to entertainment to international relations.
