Local Author Fictionalizes New Jersey Police Pioneer
We're always excited when Eureka's Amy Stewart comes out with a new book. But darn it, her latest work is fiction, and we don't do (much) fiction.
Fortunately, Girl Waits With Gun is based on a true story.
It's about a towering New Jersey woman of a century ago, Constance Kopp, and the circumstances that turned her and her sisters into heat-packing law enforcers.
Constance became the first female deputy sheriff in the country!
Amy Stewart joins us to talk about her embellishments upon the true story of the Kopp sisters.
