Internationally bestselling author Tess Gerritsen has been making book trailers and other literary video content for more than a decade.

She’s the author of many books, but most people know her because of her series about homicide detective Jane Rizzoli and medical examiner Maura Isles–the inspiration for TNT’s “Rizzoli & Isles” show

In this BookReels special feature, we go through her literary video portfolio and share our favorite videos.
