Associated Press covers 'The Oldest Profession in Texas'
Jacobus Books authors James Pylant and Sherri Knight were interviewed for an Associated Press feature, "Waco Madam's Life Recalled," written by Paul A. Romer. The article focuses on Cora McMahan, a colorful character discussed in Pylant and Knight's book, The Oldest Profession in Texas. "Before her life came to a violent end somewhere between Temple and Belton in August 1890," writes Romer, "Cora McMahan had developed a salacious reputation everywhere she lived."
