Sex, Love & Cops: A Memoir Of My Five Years As A Young Cop
A memoir, following the true story of Wendy Wilkins as she joins the police force , a naive twenty-year-old cop in Melbourne, Australia and discovers many firsts, her first arrest, murder, dead body, love, cop culture and a #metoo moment… The good the bad and the ugly of life as a cop in Melbourne Australia, in the late 80’s early 90’s.
A fast paced and entertaining read with some wonderful characters who just happen to be real. A peek inside the gritty underbelly of Melbourne’s police world, through the lens of a young female cop. Wendy navigates this new world, while falling in love and being sexually awakened herself.
Vignettes in the style of Candace Bushnell’s “Sex and The City” Novella.
“I get lots of questions, like ‘A real cop? Did you carry a gun? Oh, but in Australia, not much happened there!’ Have you seen the Oscar nominated movie, Animal Kingdom? I knew some of the real criminals portrayed in that movie, and knew the two young cops that were ambushed and killed. And yes, I carried a Smith and Wesson ’38 . . . . I wrote the cop stories, like vignettes in Candace Bushnell’s Sex and the City.”
