J. A. Devereaux is passionate about the thief who isn’t really a bad guy, guys like Alexander Mundy (It Takes a Thief); Neal Caffrey (White Collar); the “Leverage” crew; REQUISITION FOR: A THIEF's Gregg Hadyn, Niki Grey, and Jaelynn Madding; and Thief à la Femme's Rayla Rousseau. Such characters motivated her extensive knowledge of diamonds and her own thieving skills, strictly for research and writing purposes, of course! A long distance runner, former cross country coach, and former singer/songwriter, she resides with her husband in Jackson, Michigan.

I have created an "alternate universe," a fantasy escape world for myself and anyone who cares to join me in my stories. As you might be able to tell from my author picture, I really get into my thief! So... I guess the answer is yes. My subconscious is always keyed into my "secret place," and vice versa.(less)

Thanks, Alethea!
I have two separate book series: Requisition For: A Thief and Thief à la Femme, both focusing on the thief and what he/she can do--because they are the best thieves in the world! I was a Leverage and White Collar junkie, lol--even a "Fan of the Week" the first season for White Collar. The decision on where to start needs to be which series fits you best. If you're a hot male thief sort, pick up Requisition For: A Thief <1>. If you're into following a female thief try out Born to Steal (Thief à la Femme Book 1). In any case, if you like thieves that are the best at what they do, and they're not really bad guys, you'll want to read both series. The eBooks are priced low.
Thanks so much for getting in touch!

Any questions you may have as you're reading, please don't hesitate to ask!

“From REQUSISITION FOR: A THIEF - Book 1
Female Reporter: "Agent Garret, could you answer one more question?... Why can't the FBI catch this guy?"
Director Denny Garret: "The problem is two-fold, really. ...If we're ever gonna catch him it's gonna be because he's failed. If you want to see Gregg Hadyn fail, a jewel heist is the last place to look."

Carly Macklin: "What is your thing, Gregg Hadyn?"
Gregg Hadyn: "You know, I'm really good at taking things that don't belong to me."

Director Denny Garret: "Bobby pins?"
International Jewel Thief Gregg Hadyn: "They make the best handcuff picks.”
