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)

I'd fly on brooms, play quidditch, and use my wand like I now use my lock-picking tools--for the good of others! (less)

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.”
