Lisa-Jo Baker      

Best-Selling Author & Co-Host of the Out of the Ordinary Podcast

Lisa-Jo Baker is a bestselling author, lapsed lawyer, current acquisitions editor for W Publishing, an imprint of HarperCollins, and the bestselling author of "Never Unfriended," along with "The Middle Matters" and "Surprised by Motherhood."

With a BA in English/prelaw from Gordon College and a JD from the University of Notre Dame Law School, Baker has lived and worked on three continents in the human rights field and subsequently spent nearly a decade leading the online community of women called (in)courage as their editor in chief and community manager.

Baker sees life through story-colored lenses and loves people, movies, books, and helping other authors decode their stories. She is the co-host of the "Out of the Ordinary" podcast — the show that helps you grow a daily life that matters.

Originally from South Africa, Baker now lives just outside Washington, D.C., where she met and fell in love with her husband in the summer of ’96. Their story together spans decades, languages, countries, books, three very opinionated children, and one dog.
