I'm Nancy, by the way, and this is my sister Plum. Luckily, we're both pretty good at making up stories about the adventures and pretty dresses that we'd like to have, and that helps us put up with Mrs Monday and her awful niece Marybelle. But one day, we're going to escape, and maybe we'll find a nice home and a family all of our own. Wouldn't that be just wonderful?

In1982, I was reading a column in the life/styles section of the Gary Post-Tribune newspaper. The columnist, a Mr. Blaine Marz, had a fictional character that he used from time to time, called Hashish McTavish. My cartoon character, Plum Duff, seemed perfect for the column, so I sent some drawings in to the paper. In a column called Reader has own concept of Hash (Hashish McTavish), Mr. Marz wrote, Spencer, formerly Szpejnowski, sent along sketches of several other of his cartoon characters, including Crabb Apple, who might be more appropriate for the McTavish of late than the obviously more lighthearted Plum Duff. I almost wrote it Plum McDuff. Along with the drawing of the Scottish Plum smoking a pipe, Mr. Marz used a poem that I had written, entitled Uncle Tony. Later, in November 1983, Mr. Marz used the Plum Duff character in a column that included my poem Starlight on Snowdrifts. Plum Duff was shown for a third time when I sent in a cartoon for the Gary Post-Tribune Future contest. The idea was to describe how Northwest Indiana would look in the future. Plum Duff was shown next to a drawing of Steel Mill in Gary that had a big Closed sign on it. My entry got an honorable mention. Now that I have retired, I have decided to share Plum Duff and the others with the world. I hope that everyone will enjoy the drawings, along with the Hot Cross Puns.

Looking to get lucky? Stephanie Plum is back between-the-numbers and she's looking to get lucky in an Atlantic City hotel room, in a Winnebago, and with a brown-eyed stud who has stolen her heart. Stephanie Plum has a way of attracting danger, lunatics, oddballs, bad luck . . . and mystery men. And no one is more mysterious than the unmentionable Diesel. He's back and hot on the trail of a little man in green pants who's lost a giant bag of money. Problem is, the money isn't exactly lost. Stephanie's Grandma Mazur has found it, and like any good Jersey senior citizen, she's hightailed it in a Winnebago to Atlantic City and hit the slots. With Lula and Connie in tow, Stephanie attempts to bring Grandma home, but the luck of the Irish is rubbing off on everyone: Lula's found a job modeling plus-size lingerie. Connie's found a guy. Diesel's found Stephanie. And Stephanie has found herself in over her head with a caper involving thrice-stolen money, a racehorse, a car chase, and a bad case of hives. Plum Lucky is an all-you-can-eat buffet of thrills, chills, shrimp cocktail, plus-size underwear, and scorching hot men. It's a between-the-numbers treat no Evanovich fan will want to miss!
