A Q&A with Janet Evanovich

Why did you write your new book, Going Rogue? What was your inspiration? Where did the idea start? 

This is a continuing series, so the start-up process is slightly different from writing a single title. Characters, setting, and author voice are already determined. Inspiration comes from the desire to entertain and communicate with a lot of people in a positive way. I begin by asking myself ‘what would grab the reader’s attention on the first page and keep them reading to the end of the book’? In this case it was to put someone in jeopardy. I also wanted to have some of the sexiness of earlier books show up in this book. Especially with Ranger who is a fan-favorite character 

What’s the last book you read, loved, and can’t stop recommending? Why is it so good?

I don’t read a lot of fiction because it interferes with my own writing. I read cookbooks. I’m a cookbook junkie. And I can’t cook. I’m very good at eating, but I’m truly lousy at cooking. Somebody Feed Phil the Book just came out and it’s terrific. It’s taken from one of my very favorite television shows, Somebody Feed Phil.  Phil Rosenthal makes me happy. I don’t know him personally, but he makes me happy all the same. And I love him for that.  The cookbook and the television show are all about family, friends, food, travel and laughs. Yes, Phil is funny! He restores my faith in humanity and the food chain.  

What’s the first book you remember reading? Who gave it to you?

I always read comic books, but the first real book I remember was Heidi. My mom read a couple chapters to me every night. It was a dreary, depressing story about a little girl who was forced to walk up a mountain while she was wearing her entire wardrobe. I guess because she didn’t have a backpack or a suitcase or an ATV. Then she was left with a grouchy old man who was a total stranger. And she had to live with him and some goats or sheep on this mountain. At least that was my five-year-old take on it. It’s a wonder I ever read another book. The next book that I remember was The Black Stallion by Walter Farley. I loved it!   My Aunt Jean gave it to me for my birthday. After that she gave me a horse book for every holiday and birthday and they’re among my fondest childhood memories. For years I galloped and whinnied everywhere pretending I was a horse.

Praise for Janet Evanovich

“Janet Evanovich is the crown princess of detective fiction” —BookPage

“Among the great joys of contemporary crime fiction.” —GQ

“A blast of fresh air.” —the Washington Post

“The most popular mystery writer alive.” —Sam Tanenhaus, the New York Times

About Janet Evanovich

Over the last twenty-six years, Janet Evanovich has written a staggering forty-two New York Times bestsellers. In addition to her #1 bestselling Stephanie Plum novels and many other popular books, Janet is the author of The Recovery Agent, the start of a blockbuster new series.

Join AFS for Two Special Screenings!

This July, we are partnering with Austin Film Society to present two days of author events at AFS Cinema. On Friday, July 22, director Anne Rapp presents her documentary feature on Texas writer Horton Foote with a panel discussion following the screening featuring Rapp, author Tim O’Brien, and filmmaker Richard Linklater. O’Brien returns the next afternoon on Saturday, July 23, for a screening of the documentary THE WAR AND PEACE OF TIM O’BRIEN with director Aaron Matthews. Tickets are now on sale for both shows.

Friday, July 22 at 7:00 PM

A documentary that chronicles the creative journey of acclaimed Texas writer Horton Foote. Foote, who was born and raised in Wharton, Texas, went on to become a Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright, the winner of two Academy Awards for screenwriting (TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD and TENDER MERCIES), an Emmy Award for television writing (Adaptation of Williams Faulkner’s “Old Man”), and was the recipient of the National Medal of Arts among numerous other theatrical and literary prizes.

Director Anne Rapp is a Texas-born filmmaker, screenwriter, and script supervisor. She has worked on more than 50 feature films since 1981 and collaborated with filmmaker Robert Altman during the last decade of his career.

Horton Foote is the 1999 recipient of the Texas Writer Award, formerly known as the Bookend Award, which is given to a Texas writer in recognition of outstanding contributions to Texas literature.

Saturday, July 23 at 4:30 PM

Author Tim O’Brien and director Aaron Matthews will join AFS for this special screening of the new film documenting the National Book Award winner’s arduous journey through the writing process of his latest work, his first in twenty years and an immensely painful meditation about a subject he knows only too well—war.

Tim O’Brien has been called “the best American writer of his generation,” and “our poet laureate of war.” A Vietnam veteran, and National Book Award-winner, O’Brien is one of the great voices in modern American literature. The Library of Congress named his groundbreaking novel about the Vietnam War, “The Things They Carried,” one of the 65 most influential books in American history.

Tim O’Brien is the 2012 recipient of the Texas Writer Award.
