About Janet Evanovich
Best-selling author Janet Evanovich’s net worth of $100 million was earned writing dozens of award-winning novels. Born in New Jersey in 1943, Evanovich began writing romance novels in the 1980s, eventually shifting genres to focus more on the suspenseful side of reading. Though she began her career writing under a pen name, Evanovich shot to stardom and fame with her Stephanie Plum series.
Each of her 19 Stephanie Plum novels made it to the top of many best-sellers lists, including the New York Times’ list. Janet Evanovich began her career as a writer in her 30s when she made the decision to become a stay-at-home mom and began writing novels on the side. It wasn’t until 1987, however, that her first novel was published. Evanovich married her husband in 1964. The couple has a son and a daughter, both of whom work for Evanovich’s company. She and her husband split their time between their New Hampshire and Florida homes.
