Alive Hires Industry Vet Lisa Jackson


Colorado Springs, CO., June 19, 2013 — Lisa Jackson, Associate Publisher of Tyndale Publishing House, has made a career transition to become an agent with Colorado Springs-based Alive Literary Agency, the nation’s largest, most influential literary agency for faith-based and inspirational authors, announced company Founder and President Rick Christian today.

“Lisa is a highly-connected editorial all-star with ink in her blood and a stellar reputation with authors and publishers. She really has an innate sense of how to make good books great and the golden ability to spot bestsellers at the seed-thought stage,” said Christian.

Lisa Jackson brings nearly 25 years of publishing experience to her new post and will relocate from the Chicago area to Colorado. She cut her editorial teeth as a local newspaper reporter and editor in North Central Illinois, learning very early on the power of the written word. After several years behind the news desk, Lisa joined the team at Christianity Today International as Associate Editor of Christian Parenting Today. In 2000, she rounded out her publishing journey with a move from magazines to books, joining Tyndale where she has served as Associate Publisher, leading the team that acquired numerous award-winning titles and New York Times bestsellers. With extensive experience in both the ABA and CBA markets, she understands the importance of helping authors find their voice and shape their message. While at Tyndale, Lisa was privileged to work directly with a long list of key authors, including Beth Moore, Tony Dungy, David Platt, Steve Saint, Tim Pawlenty, Ann Voskamp, David Jeremiah, and John Ortberg.

“Alive has a long-standing history of working with the best of the best and it’s a huge privilege to be joining this amazing team,” said Lisa. “I look forward to working with a great group of authors at the front end of the process–helping them to shape their message and tell their stories in the most compelling way possible.”
