Janet Evanovich is the author of the Stephanie Plum mystery novels, some romance novels and the Alexandra Barnaby novels. She also wrote How I Write: Secrets of a Bestselling Author with Ina Yalof.

Her most famous series with Stephanie Plum has nicknames like "by the numbers" because each in the series has a play on a phrase with the next sequential number in it. The movie rights for the first book in the series, One for the Money, sold many years before it was made into the movie, released in 2012. That money enabled her and her family the financial resources to focus on her writing. In 2011, the 18th book in the Stephanie Plum series was released. There are also some related books featuring with the Stephanie Plum character in them, which are not part of the "by the numbers" series.
