Amy Stewart

Amy Stewart is the New York Times bestselling author of over a dozen books, including the new Kopp Sisters series, which began with Girl Waits With Gun. The series is based on the true story of three remarkable sisters who lived in New Jersey a hundred years ago and is under development with Amazon Studios for an hourlong drama series.

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.

Wicked Plants

Wicked Plants

If you are not yet botanically inclined, this book is the place to start. Plants to the untrained eye may seem like only green and brown background scenery that fills your average day. My friend, I have news for you. Plants are so much more than background scenery. We often underestimate the inherent connection between ourselves and the plants around us. This book breaks that barrier with fun, candor, and delightful storytelling.

Wicked Bugs

Wicked Bugs

In Wicked Bugs you’ll discover insects are more fascinating than you may think, especially the way Amy Stewart tells it! Chapters range from the scientific to the anecdotal, framed by stunning illustrations from Briony Morrow-Cribbs, which make a somewhat disturbing topic equally fascinating. You’ll be so filled with stories and strange facts about our many-legged friends you’ll want to bring them up at your next dinner party—the squeamish will have to remain uninvited.
