Janet Evanovich is a writer born in South River, New Jersey.
She is principaly known to have created the character Stephanie Plum, a salesperson of lingerie that has to improvise as a bounty hunter to fill her fridge.
After four years at the art section of the Douglas College in New Jersey, Janet Evanovich decided to go into writing. Sending many manuscripts to several editors, she got as many refusals.
Returning to be a secretary she received a call by a editor interessed in Second Chance at Love, a love novel today forgotten by all. After twelve books of the same kind, she decides to change its way and launch into the police one.
