Amy Stewart is the author of eight books, including four New York Times bestsellers: The Drunken Botanist, Wicked Bugs, Wicked Plants, and Flower Confidential.  Stewart has appeared on NPR’s Morning Edition and Fresh Air. She’s been featured on CBS Sunday Morning, Good Morning America, the PBS documentary The Botany of Desire, and TLC’s Cake Boss. Stewart has written for the New York Times, the Washington Post, and many other newspapers and magazines. Lady Cop Makes Trouble (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt) is Stewart’s second installment in the Kopp Sisters series, based on the true story of one of the nation’s first female deputy sheriffs. After besting (and arresting) a ruthless silk factory owner and his gang of thugs, Constance Kopp has proven that she can’t be deterred, evaded, or outrun. But when the wiles of a German-speaking con man threaten her position and her hopes for this new life, Constance may not be able to make things right. Lady Cop Makes Trouble sets Constance loose on the streets of New York City and New Jersey–tracking down victims, trailing leads, and making friends with girl reporters and lawyers at a hotel for women.
