Dom happens to be the cousin of Joe Morelli, Stephanie's off-again, on-again boyfriend, so when less than a week after Dom's release from prison, Joe has shadowy figures breaking into his house and dying in his basement, Stephanie finds herself inescapably involved in this bank-robbery-gone-bad disaster. With an offer from Ranger of some night work she can't refuse, personal vendettas, hidden treasure and a monkey named Carl, it's not long before Stephanie Plum is embroiled in her most explosive adventure ever! Warning! Only the fearless should read Fourteen.
Janet Evanovich was born on April 22 1943, in South River, New Jersey. She began her career writing short contemporary romance novels under the pen name Steffie Hall, but gained fame authoring a series of mysteries featuring Stephanie Plum, a lingerie buyer from Trenton, New Jersey who becomes a bounty hunter to make ends meet after losing her job.
After graduating high school she spent four years studying art, but as she says "it never felt exactly right". She started writing and collected several rejection letters. While working for a temp agency she received a call from an agent wanting to buy her manuscript, and wrote romance novels for the next five years.
After exhausting her appetite for the genre, she took two years off relaxing and developed the character Stephanie Plum. Janet will not go so far as to say the character is autobiographical, but she does admit to adding a few things of herself into Stephanie.
She describes herself as a boring workaholic, with no hobbies or special interests, and the only exercise she gets is shopping.
