If we can laugh at something, we can face it.
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. Like Seinfeld , her new books would have a central character that the rest of the cast of characters revolve around.
The profession is also "romanticised to some extent. She also researched more about the city of Trenton , where she wanted her books to be set. Evanovich shares many commonalities with her character Stephanie Plum. Both are from New Jersey, both devour Cheetos, both had owned a hamster, and both have shared "similar embarrassing experiences.

High Five (Stephanie Plum #5)(18) by Janet Evanovich
What you need is to have a serial killer or a homicidal rapist jump bail. Those boys are worth something. Yes, they are insane, yes they are genetically challenged, but they are soooo much fun, all else pales in comparison!!! Reading these books one a month is a great decision! It is so, because the books have a very specific feel to them and binge-reading them together would do a disservice to the comic relief they provide. I think of them as a giant chocolate candy-bar with nuts and taffy and everything most wonderful you can think of. Eating one of them is an orgasmic experience, but it does verge on suicide by candy.
