Omaha, NE -- August 2, 2007

Reading Lean Mean Thirteen, by Janet Evanovitch. She’s read all her books. Why has it taken her so long to getting around to reading this one (it came out a month ago)? She was reading a biography about Cleopatra, which was 964 pages. It chronicles Cleopatra's life and confronts the misconceptions people have about her. It’s written in diary format and is the product of a lot of research. Through reading it she was struck by how little has changed about humanity though technology and the world has changed.

Some of her favorite authors—Elizabeth Peters, Rex Stout, James Patterson and Clive Cussler.

She has written short stories and children’s stories. She started writing a fantasy type book, which she will finish... when she retires!
