By day, Alisa Jones is a copywriter and brand strategist for a broad array of clients, including Tommy Hilfiger, General Electric, Colgate-Palmolive, Coca-Cola, Sephora, Disney, Citibank, Golden Books, Electronic Arts, and Marvel.
By night, she is an American memoirist, blogger, screenwriter, and astonishingly awkward public speaker. The co-creator of one positively riveting crime series (GIFTED), her award-winning bon mots have been featured widely in national media outlets, and on NPR. An advocate for neurodiversity, mental health, and epilepsy, Jones’s debut collection of comedic essays GOTHAM GIRL INTERRUPTED (Imagine/Penguin Random House) was a #1 new release on Amazon and is available everywhere books are sold as well as on IndieBound and Barnes & Noble.
"Smart... harrowing, heart-warming, and very funny." — James Patterson
“Like a candid conversation with an amusing friend, this is a surprisingly funny look at a clinically humorless disorder.” — Kirkus
When not preoccupied with scheming up new ways to embarrass her children and various household pets, Jones splits her time between New York City and the Berkshires.
