Had a terrific hour-long interview with Janet Evanovich on Monday and just finished writing the Game Plan column that will go live on Friday. In the meantime, here’s a fun tidbit from the conversation that didn’t make the column that Stephanie Plum fans will appreciate.

In The New York Times review of the latest in the series, Finger Lickin’ Fifteen, the way Marilyn Stasio refers to recurring character Lula made Janet chuckle.

“She called Lula fat,” Evanovich said. “There’s a world of hurt there. You say something like that and Lula’s gonna come get you.”

Those of us who have come to love the endearing former hooker who wears spandex a few sizes too small and threatens to sit on people don’t doubt it for a minute.
