VJ Books Presents Author Janet Evanovich!

Janet Evanovich Janet Evanovich was born in New Jersey. She began her career writing short contemporary romance novels under the pen name Steffie Hall, but gained fame authoring a series of contemporary mysteries featuring Stephanie Plum.

Evanovich began writing novels in her thirties. 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.

After finishing her twelfth romance, however, Evanovich realized that she was more interested in writing the action sequences in her novels rather 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.

She decided that she wanted to write romantic adventure novels. Her new type of writing would contain heroes and heroines, as well as "a sense of family and community". Evanovich decided that her heroine would be a bounty hunter. 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.

Evanovich continues to write romantic adventures such as the Plum series, Fox and O'Hare series, Barnaby & Hooker series, Knight & Moon series, and the Lizzy & Diesel (Wicked) series.
