Hi there. I'm 26 years old, I live in NJ and I am obsessed with the Stephanie Plum series. Being from NJ, I love recognizing the real places that JE mentions in her books. I went to The College of NJ (which in the book is referred to by its older name, Trenton State College) and I used to live next to the Quaker Bridge Mall. The funniest parts about her descriptions of NJ are that JE makes Trenton sound nicer than it really is, and makes the rest of NJ sound worse.
I am a HUGE babe fan and get very frustrated over Steph and Joe's relationship. Joe is a great guy, but I'd give my left arm to see her and Ranger admit their true love for each other. Maybe one day *sigh*. However, I am making it my goal to read every JE story out there, whether it be Babe, Cupcake, Tart, or neither!
I am not a writer and don't plan on writing any of my own stories. I'm not that creative and would probably end up just stealing others' ideas. For now, I will live vicariously through the fictional lives of the Plum characters that all of you wonderful writers have created =)
One of the things in the books that always bothered me was when in "Hot Six" Stephanie goes to spy on the Ramos house and spots Ranger leaving it. He never seems to notice that she's there. Stephanie never brings this up! Wouldn't you want the opportunity to bust Ranger's balls that he wasn't aware of his surroundings?? I'd love to read a story about this incident. If anyone knows of one, or would like to take a shot at writing one, please let me know!
I'd also love to discuss/rant about recent books (just finished 16), so please message me! I don't have anyone in real life to talk to them about!
I have also just started reading Twilight fanfics and I have to admit that they are a lot better than the JE stories (longer, more character development, etc). I'm impressed with how original a lot of the stories are. Just change the names and and publish them!
