As fate would have it only a certain number of authors are able to make an outstanding name for themselves. Getting to be a top notch writer is a feat in itself just like creating memorable stories is. Janet Evanovich stands out as one of the best authors in the genre of romance, mystery and suspense literature. Also known by the pen name,Steffie Hall, she has been filling bookstores with her novels since 1987. Life and times of EvanovichEvanovich, whose middle name is Schneider was born in April 22, 1943 in South River, New Jersey. This is the place she spent her early days, growing up. She attended South River High School and later proceeded to Douglass College. Born to a machinist father and a mother who was a housewife, Evanovich happened to be the first in her family to attend college. Evanovich pursued a degree in art from the college which was part of Rutgers University in New Jersey. She graduated in 1965. A year before that, she married her husband Peter Evanovich and they settled in New Hampshire. They have two children, a son and a daughter. When Janet Evanovich became a mother, she saw it fit to become a housewife and raise her children up by herself. When she hit the thirties, she began the journey of writing novels. In a bid to learn how to better her writing of dialog, she took lessons in improvisational acting. Her first task saw her spend many years trying to write the Great American novel. Her efforts seemed futile when she was unable to make sales for the three manuscripts she had managed to complete. Ten years after she began writing, she decided to change her genre into writing romance. She finally got a hold of the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow when her second romance novel attracted a publisher. She sold the manuscript for $2000 which she considered a whooping amount. Thereafter, she began establishing herself as a prolific author and luckily success was on her side. The literary works of Janet EvanovichOver forty novels have been written and published by Evanovich. She has also been able to work collaboratively with other writers like Charlotte Hughes, Stephen J. Cannell and Lee Goldberg. Her debut novel, Hero at Large,got published in 1987 under her pseudo-name Steffie Hall. In 1988, she landed a deal with Bantam Loveswept publishing house. For the subsequent five years, she began writing romance novels for Bantam under her real name. This experience was beneficial to Evanovich because she learnt how to create characters that the reader would love and identify with. She stamped her identity in writing with her style that featured humor amidst the dominant romantic theme. Over the course of time,it dawned on Evanovich that she enjoyed writing the action-packed scenes in her novels rather than the sentimental, intimate sequences. By the time she completed writing her twelfth novel, she made up her mind to shift focus to romantic adventure novels. This was the beginning of a total shift in the style of writing for Evanovich. Her new novels would incorporate the format of first person narrative. Moreover, her stories would feature a central character and the rest of the characters would revolve around this one prominent character. The new novels would also portray heroes and heroines and carry a family spirit; a sense of community in the style of writing. The first novel in her new category of romance adventure is One for the Money, published in 1994. This book introduced the heroine Evanovich had chosen for her next series of novels. Stephanie Plum, a bounty hunter became a household name among Evanovich’s novels. The series which has over twenty books gradually became a hit. The sixth book in the series, Hot Six,clinched the number one spot in the New York Times Best Seller list. This was her first book to win such an accolade. From that moment onwards, all the subsequent books in the series made it to the number one spot. The novel One for the Money, earned Janet Evanovich $1 million when Columbia Tristar bought the movie rights to this book. Apart from the eight single romance novels she wrote as Steffie Hall, she has a large collection of novels under the following series;- Elsie Hawkins series Stephanie Plum series Wicked series The Barnaby series Full series with Charlotte Hughes Hot series with Leanne Banks O’Hare and Fox series with Lee Goldberg One for the Money is indeed the ultimate romance adventure novel. It introduces Stephanie Plum who happens to be a lingerie salesperson in dire need of a job. She seeks for a filing job with a bail bondsman, Vinnie who happens to be her cousin. The job turns out to be taken but she is advised to apprehend a number of clients who have proved unreliable in settling their bonds. She agrees to this just because she is in a financial quagmire and the job would earn her some commission. Her first task is to find Joe Morelli who also happens to be her former sexual acquaintance. The mystery adventure picks up when during her job activities, Stephanie crosses the path of a boxer linked with the murders of several women. The second book in this hit series is Two for the Dough. Stephanie Plum is still learning the ropes on being a bounty hunter. Therefore, her boss Vinnie brings her to the task on a manageable case; apprehending Kenny Mancuso cousin to Joe Morelli. The boy Kenny, allegedly shot his best friend on the knee then jumped bail. While on this quest, Stephanie meets Spiro Stiva whose father owns a local funeral home. He asks her to help him find some basement caskets and body parts that have gone missing. As she progresses with her investigations, Stephanie begins getting threats and pieces of embalmed bodies in her apartment. The height of it all is when Stephanie and her grandma are locked up in the the basement hall of the funeral home owned by the Stivas. Janet Evanovich builds up the sterling performance of Stephanie Plum as the consistent heroine in the subsequent books in the series.

Who is Stephanie Plum?Stephanie Plum is the main character in a series of novels written by Janet Evanovich. She is a female bounty hunter from New Jersey. After being fired from a job as a lingerie buyer, she tried to win money in other small jobs but failed, and then her car is repossessed. That’s when she turned to her cousin Vinnie, owner of Vincent Plum Bail Bonds, and forced him to give her a job. Now, in each book, Stephanie goes after one or more people who are declared ‘failure to appear’ because they have not appeared for their court date. Stephanie Plum Books in Order: One For the Money– Stephanie Plum is down on her luck. She’s lost her job, her car’s on the brink of repossession, and her apartment is fast becoming furniture-free. Enter Cousin Vinnie, a low-life who runs a bail-bond company. If Stephanie can bring in vice cop turned outlaw Joe Morelli, she stands to pick up $10,000. But tracking down a cop wanted for murder isn’t easy…Two For the Dough– Stephanie Plum is still learning the ropes at her cousin Vinnie’s bail bond office, so when she sets out on the trail of Kenny Mancuso–a suspiciously wealthy, working-class Trenton boy who has just shot his best friend–the stakes are higher than ever. That Mancuso is distantly related to vice cop Joe Morelli only makes the hunt more thrilling…Three to Get Deadly– A ‘saintly’ old candy store owner is on the lam and Stephanie Plum is on the case. As the body count rises, Stephanie finds herself dealing with dead drug dealers and slippery fugitives on the chase of her life.Four to Score– Stephanie is hot on the trail of revenge-seeking waitress Maxine Nowicki, whose crimes include bail jumping, theft, and extortion. Someone is terrifying Maxine’s friends, and those who have seen her are turning up dead. High Five– Out of bail skippers and rent money, Stephanie Plum throws caution to the wind and follows in the entrepreneurial bootsteps of Super Bounty Hunter, Ranger, engaging in morally correct and marginally legal enterprises. So, a scumball blows himself to smithereens on her first day of policing a crack house and the sheik she was chauffeuring stole the limo.Hot Six– Stephanie Plum and Trenton vice cop Joe Morelli join forces to find the madman killer who shot and barbecued the youngest son of international black-market arms dealer Alexander Ramos. Ranger is caught on video just minutes before the crime occurs. He’s at the scene, he’s with the victim, and he’s the number-one suspect.Seven Up– Semiretired mob guy Eddie DeCooch is caught trafficking contraband cigarettes through Trenton, New Jersey. When DeCooch fails to show for a court appearance, bond enforcement agent Stephanie Plum is assigned the task of finding him and dragging his decrepit ass back to jail. Not such an easy job, it turns out.Hard Eight– Stephanie is hired to find a missing child. But things aren’t always as they seem and Stephanie must determine if she’s working for the right side of the law. Visions of Sugar Plums A short Christmas special– It’s five days before Christmas and things are not looking merry for Fugitive Apprehension Agent Stephanie Plum. She hasn’t got a tree. She hasn’t bought any presents. The malls are jam-packed with staggering shoppers. There’s not a twinkle light anywhere to be seen in her apartment. And there’s a strange man in her kitchen.To the Nines– Vinnie has posted bail on Samuel Singh, an illegal immigrant. When the elusive Mr. Singh goes missing, Stephanie is on the case. But what she uncovers is far more sinister than anyone imagines and leads to a group of killers who give new meaning to the word hunter.Ten Big Ones– It begins as an innocent trip to the deli-mart, on a quest for nachos. But Stephanie Plum and her partner, Lula, are clearly in the wrong place at the wrong time. A robbery leads to an explosion, which leads to the destruction of yet another car. It would be just another day in the life of Stephanie Plum, except that she becomes the target of a gang.Eleven on Top– Stephanie Plum quits. No changing her mind. She wants something safe and normal. Trouble follows her, and the kind of trouble she had at the bail bonds office can’t compare to the kind of trouble she finds herself facing now. She’s stalked by a maniac returned from the grave for the sole purpose of putting her into a burial plot of her own. Twelve Sharp– Ranger needs Stephanie for more reasons than he can say. And now, the two are working together to find a killer, rescue a missing child, and stop a lunatic from raising the body count.

Will the ticking clock stop at the stroke of twelve…or will a stranger in the wind find a way to stop Stephanie Plum…forever?Plum Lovin’– Mysterious men have a way of showing up in Stephanie Plum’s apartment.

Fearless Fourteen– Dom Rizzi robbed a bank, stashed the money, and did the time. His family couldn’t be more proud. He always was the smart one. Less than a week after Dom’s release from prison, Joe Morelli has shadowy figures breaking into his house and dying in his basement. He’s getting threatening messages, Loretta is kidnapped, and Dom is missing.Plum Spooky– Wulf Grimoire is a world wanderer and an opportunist who can kill without remorse and disappear like smoke.

Stephanie Plum has Munch on her most-wanted list for failure to appear in court.Finger Lickin’ Fifteen– Stephanie’s working overtime tracking felons for the bonds office at night and snooping for security expert Carlos Manoso, aka Ranger, during the day. Can she hunt down two killers, a traitor, and five skips, keep her grandmother out of the sauce, and solve Ranger’s problems and not jump his bones?Sizzling Sixteen– It’s dangerous to owe money to a mobster…Stephanie Plum’s no-good cousin and boss, Vinnie, has been kidnapped over gambling debts – and if there’s no Vinnie, that means she’s out of a job. Smokin’ Seventeen– Dead bodies are showing up in shallow graves on the empty construction lot of Vincent Plum Bail Bonds. No one is sure who the killer is, or why the victims have been offed, but what is clear is that Stephanie’s name is on the killer’s list.Explosive Eighteen– Stephanie’s dream vacation turned into a nightmare, and she’s flying back to New Jersey solo. Worse still, her seatmate never returned to the plane after the L.A. layover. Now he’s dead–and a ragtag collection of thugs and psychos, not to mention the FBI, are all looking for a photograph he was supposed to be carrying.Notorious Nineteen– Geoffrey Cubbin, facing trial for embezzling millions from Trenton’s premier assisted-living facility, has mysteriously vanished from the hospital after an emergency appendectomy. Now it’s on Stephanie to track him down. Unfortunately, Cubbin has disappeared without a trace, a witness, or his money-hungry wife.Takedown Twenty– New Jersey bounty hunter Stephanie Plum knows better than to mess with family. But when powerful mobster Salvatore ‘Uncle Sunny’ Sunucchi goes on the lam in Trenton, it’s up to Stephanie to find him. Top Secret Twenty-one– Trenton, New Jersey’s favorite used-car dealer, Jimmy Poletti, was caught selling a lot more than used cars out of his dealerships. Now he’s out on bail and has missed his date in court, and bounty hunter Stephanie Plum is looking to bring him in. Leads are quickly turning into dead ends, and all too frequently into dead bodies.Tricky Twenty-two– Ken Globovic (aka Gobbles), hailed as the Supreme Exalted Zookeeper of the animal house known as Zeta fraternity, has been arrested for beating up the dean of students at Kiltman College. Gobbles has missed his court date and gone into hiding. People have seen him on campus, but no one will talk.Turbo Twenty-three– Larry Virgil skipped out on his latest court date after he was arrested for hijacking an eighteen-wheeler full of premium bourbon. Fortunately for bounty hunter Stephanie Plum, Larry is just stupid enough to attempt almost the exact same crime again. Only this time he flees the scene, leaving behind a freezer truck loaded with Bogart ice cream and a dead body.Hardcore Twenty-Four– Trouble comes in bunches for Stephanie Plum. First, professional grave robber and semi-professional loon, Simon Diggery, won’t let her take him in until she agrees to care for his boa constrictor, Ethel. Stephanie’s main qualification for babysitting an extremely large snake is that she owns a stun gun—whether that’s for use on the wandering serpent or the petrified neighbors remains to be seen. Look Alive Twenty-Five– There’s nothing like a good deli, and the Red River Deli in Trenton is one of the best. World-famous for its pastrami, cole slaw, and for its disappearing managers. Over the last month, three have vanished from the face of the earth, and the only clue in each case is one shoe that’s been left behind. The police are baffled. Lula is convinced that it’s a case of alien abduction. Whatever it is, they’d better figure out what’s going on before they lose their new manager, Ms. Stephanie Plum.You like that article, share it:MoreFacebookTwitterEmailPrintWhatsAppRelatedbooksCrimereading orderRomancePrevious Stone Barrington Books in Order: How to read Stuart Woods series?Next The Peter Decker and Rina Lazarus Series in Order: How to read Faye Kellerman books?4 CommentsAdd Comment → Roberta MuchaI’ve enjoyed all the Stephanie Plum books and I was wondering when number 25 will be available.

When Evanovich had children, she chose to become a housewife like her mother. In her thirties, she began writing novels.To learn the art of writing dialog, Evanovich took lessons in improv acting.For ten years, she attempted to write the Great American Novel, finishing three manuscripts that she was unable to sell. After someone suggested she try writing romance novels, Evanovich read several romances and discovered that she enjoyed the genre. She wrote two romances and submitted them for publishing.Still unable to find a publisher, Evanovich stopped writing and signed with a temporary employment agency. Several months after beginning work for them, she received an offer to buy her second romance manuscript for $2,000, which she considered an "astounding sum." Romance novelsThat novel, Hero at Large, was published in 1987 in the Second Chance Love category line under the pseudonym Steffie Hall.The following year she began writing for Bantam Loveswept under her own name.For the next five years she continued to write category romances for Loveswept.Her work within the romance novel genre helped her learn to create likable characters and attractive leading men.In this time, Evanovich also became known for the humor that filled her novels. She believes that "it's very important to take a comic approach. If we can laugh at something, we can face it." After finishing her twelfth romance, however, Evanovich realized that she was more interested in writing the action sequences in her novels than the sex scenes. Her editors were not interested in her change of heart, so Evanovich took the next eighteen months to formulate a plan for what she actually wanted to write. Stephanie Plum SeriesShe quickly decided that she wanted to write romantic adventure novels.Unlike the style of romance novels, her books would be told in first person narrative.Her new type of writing should contain heroes and heroines, as well as "a sense of family and community."In that vein, she intended her new style of writing to be based on the TV sitcom model. Like Seinfeld, her new books would have a central character that the rest of the cast of characters revolve around. Inspired by the Robert De Niromovie Midnight Run, Evanovich decided that her heroine would be a bounty hunter.This occupation provided more freedom for Evanovich as a writer, as bounty hunters do not have a set work schedule and are not forced to wear a uniform. The profession is also "romanticised to some extent."To become acquainted with the demands of the career, Evanovich spent a great deal of time shadowing bond enforcement agents. She also researched more about the city of Trenton, where she wanted her books to be set. In 1994, her initial romantic adventure, One for the Money, was published to good reviews.This was the first of a light-hearted series of mysteries starring barely competent bounty hunter Stephanie Plum. One for the Money was named a New York Times notable book, a Publishers Weekly Best Book of 1994 and a USA Today Best Bet. Evanovich has continued to write romantic adventures starring Stephanie Plum. The sixth book in the series, Hot Six, was the first of her novels to reach number one on the New York Times Best Seller List.Her subsequent Plum novels have each debuted at number one.All About Romance has described her as the "rare breed of romance author who has left the genre and yet not alienated her many romance fans." The Plum novels have taken many attributes from Evanovich's own life. Evanovich shares many commonalities with her character Stephanie Plum. Both are from New Jersey, both devour Cheetos, both had owned a hamster, and both have shared "similar embarrassing experiences."The character Grandma Mazur is loosely based on Evanovich's "Grandma Fanny" and "Aunt Lena." Evanovich claims the spirited elderly lady is "who I want to be when I grow up." Shortly before One for the Moneywas released, Evanovich sold the movie rights to Columbia TriStarfor $1 million.Lions Gate Entertainmentreleased One for the Moneyon January 27, 2012. The film stars Katherine Heiglas Stephanie Plum, Sherri Shepherdfrom The Viewas Lula, Debbie Reynoldsas Grandma Mazur, Jason O'Maraas Joe Morelli, and Daniel Sunjataas Ranger. It was directed by Julie Anne Robinson. Her latest Stephanie Plum novel, Hardcore Twenty-Four, was released November 21, 2017 and it reached number one on The New York Times Fiction Best Sellers of 2017for December 3. Knight & Moon SeriesIn 2016 Evanovich released the first book, Curious Minds, in her new Knight & Moon mystery series. Co-authored with Phoef Sutton, the book introduces two new characters, Emerson Knight and Riley Moon. Emerson Knight is a rich, eccentric introvert with little-to-no sense of social etiquette. He is also brilliant and handsome. Riley Moon is a recent Harvard Law and Harvard Business graduate. Her aggressive Texas spitfire attitude helped her land her dream job as a junior analyst at Blane-Grunwald where Emerson is a client. Together this unlikely duo finds themselves thrust into solving the most difficult of mysteries. Dangerous Minds, the second book in the series, was written by Evanovich and released in June 2017. Wicked SeriesIn 2010 Evanovich published Wicked Appetite, spinning off the character Diesel from the between-the-numbers Plum books. The heroine of Wicked Appetite is sweet cupcake baker Lizzie Tucker, who, unlike Stephanie Plum, can cook. The "Wicked" series is set in Salem, Massachusetts. In the series, Diesel & Lizzie search for the seven stones of power, each representing a different deadly sin. Lizzie & Diesel are "Unmentionables", humans with additional powers. Their rivals for the stones are Diesel's dark cousin, Gerwulf "Wulf" Grimoire, introduced in Plum Spooky and his medieval-esque minion Hatchet. Lizzie's animal companions are one-eyed Cat 7143 and Carl the Monkey, from Fearless Fourteen and Plum Spooky. Her friends include Glo, a "Questionable," and Clara Dazzle, an "Unmentionable" who lost her powers after congress with another "Unmentionable." In Wicked Appetite, the stone sought is that incarnating the sin of gluttony. In 2012 Evanovich published Wicked Business, the second in the series. In Wicked Business, the stone embodies the sin of lust. A new villain is introduced, deranged candy heiress Deirdre Early, or Anarchy. Lizzie, through a selfless act and exchange of body fluids with Wulf, converts the lust stone into the "icky true love stone", implying that in the right circumstances, the stones of sin can be converted into stones of virtue. In 2015 Evanovich teamed up with Phoef Suttonfor the third novel in the series, Wicked Charms. The Stone of Avarice (Greed) is the focus of this installment. Fox and O'Hare SeriesIn June 2013, Evanovich published the novella "Pros & Cons" and the novel The Heist, the first two works in a new series co-written with Lee Goldberg. Since then the series has grown to five novels (The Heist, The Chase, The Job, The Scam, and The Pursuit), two novellas (Pros & Cons and The Shell Game) and one online short-story, The Caper. The protagonist is FBI special agent Kate O’Hare who has devoted her career to taking down one of the FBI’s most wanted con men and master thieves, Nick Fox. That is until the FBI pairs Kate with the most unlikely person, Nick Fox, to take down criminals. Together they travel the globe skirting on the edge of what is legal and illegal. Kate’s father, Jake O’Hare, a retired Special Forces operative, often aids in their quest. In June 2016, the fifth novel in the series, The Pursuit, was released. Other novelsEvanovich began a collaborative effort with Charlotte Hughes because she wanted to see some of her other ideas on paper but did not have the time to write them. This resulted in the "Full" series. The "Full" series is set in Beaumont, South Carolina and features Jamie Swift and Maximillian Holt, who meet in the second "Full" book, Full Tilt. The Elsie Hawkins novels are stand alone romances with a supporting character Elsie Hawkins, who is a gun totin' retiree, with tight grey curls, who "doesn't take sass from no one." Elsie drives a 1957 powder blue Cadillac that never seems to sustain damage. In the Stephanie Plum series, Grandma Mazur and Stephanie drive Uncle Sandor's 1953 powder blue Buick,which has similar indestructibility. In 2004, Evanovich launched another series with Metro Girl. This book debuted at Number 2 on the New York Times Best Seller List.The heroine is Alexandra Barnaby, an auto mechanic. Her love interest is Sam Hooker, a hedonistic NASCAR driver. The "Motor" series is set in the southern U.S. states. Further books in the series include Motor Mouth and Troublemaker 1 & 2 (graphic novels). Evanovich collaborated with Stephen J. Cannell, noted T.V. writer and producer (A Team, Rockford Files, Baretta, 21 Jump Street), on a book entitled No Chance, which was to be the first book in a new series. It was supposed to be released in October 2007. However, in July 2007, the book was canceled.Stephen J. Cannell died in 2010 of melanoma. Personal lifeDuring the week, Evanovich works eight or more hours per day. On weekends she generally works for an additional four hours each day.She generally creates a brief outline before beginning a new book, with one or two sentences about what will happen in each chapter.Upon the release of a new book, Evanovich regularly goes on book tours. Her book signings attracted thousands of people.
