This installment of Ten Questions features Janet Evanovich. Janet is a #1 New York Times bestselling author. Some of her works include the Stephanie Plum series, the Lizzy and Diesel series, twelve romance novels and the Fox and O’Hare series that she co-authored with Lee Goldberg.
I was introduced to Janet through my online book club (they add more books to my TBR). Members loved the Stephanie Plum series and couldn’t quit talking about how funny the books were. I’ve read the first five books and I couldn’t agree more. Plum is the perfect combo of mystery and humor. Look for book 23 in the series, Turbo Twenty-Three, coming in November.
Ten Questions vol. 2 #4 Janet Evanovich
Bookish Devices: What is your favorite word?
Janet Evanovich: Cake. It’s also my favorite food.
BD: What is your least favorite word?
JE: No. I prefer yes.
BD: What turns you on creatively, spiritually or emotionally?
JE: Oddly, I’m turned on creatively by the blank screen of my computer. It’s an invitation to write.
BD: What turns you off?
JE: The lack of politeness we seem to see every day.
BD: What sound or noise do you love?
JE: The noises that my dog, Ollie, makes when he’s sleeping in my office.
BD: What sound or noise do you hate?
JE: Leaf blowers. Remember rakes?!
BD: If you could have drinks with any author or literary figure, whom would you invite?
JE: The late Barbara Park, author of the Junie B. Jones series of children’s books. She was a genius. I’m sorry that I never got the chance to meet her.
BD: What profession other than your own would you like to attempt?
JE: NASCAR driver
BD: What profession would you not like to do?
BD: What would you choose for your last meal?
BD: What is your favorite curse word?
JE: F-f-f-fudge. My character Sally Sweet uses that a lot.
BD: If you were going to be stranded on a desert island and could only bring one book, which would you bring?
JE: Even stranded on a desert island I would probably still be writing all day long. I’d probably want to find a bit of shade and relax with a Scrooge McDuck comic.
