Amy Stewart

Amy Stewart is the author of ten books, including the new Kopp Sisters series, which began with Girl Waits With Gun and continues with Lady Cop Makes Trouble, Miss Kopp's Midnight Confessions, and Miss Kopp Just Won't Quit. The series is based on the true story of three remarkable sisters who lived in New Jersey a hundred years ago.

She loves to chat with book clubs on Skype, so if your club is reading one of the Kopp Sisters novels, please visit her website to find out how to get in touch!

Amy has also written six nonfiction books on the perils and pleasures of the natural world, including the New York Times bestsellers The Drunken Botanist, Wicked Bugs, Wicked Plants, and Flower Confidential.

She lives in Portland with her husband Scott Brown, a rare book dealer. They own an independent bookstore called Eureka Books, which is so independent that it lives in California while they live in Oregon.
