Kate White is the New York Times bestselling author of nine works of fiction--six Bailey Weggins mysteries (including So Pretty It Hurts and If Looks Could Kill), and three suspense novels: Hush, The Sixes, and the upcoming Eyes on You, which will be published in June of this year.
Kate's writer's eye has been described by the New York Times as "scathingly observant." The Los Angeles Times says of Kate's work: "It's like devouring a box of chocolates!" Publisher's Weekly recent review of her new book, Eyes on You, calls it "timely and engaging," adding that "it's [White's] devious mind that puts the thrill in this thriller." Her books have been published in 18 countries.
For 14 years. Kate was the editor in chief of Cosmopolitan magazine, taking it to number one and keeping it there. Though she loved the job (and the Cosmo beauty closet!), she decided to leave in late 2013 to work full time as an author, a long-time dream of hers.
Kate is currently editing the Mystery Writers of America cookbook, a selection of recipes from many of the top selling authors in the field.
Like many mystery writers, Kate fell in love with the genre after reading her first Nancy Drew book, The Secret of Redgate Farm, and she still admires those cliffhanger endings created by "Carolyn Keene."
She is married and the mother of two children. She once had her young daughter stalk her through the woods so she could better describe the sounds of someone being followed.
Kate is also the author of several popular career books, including I Shouldn't Be Telling You This: How to Ask for the Money, Snag the Promotion, and Create the Career You Deserve, and Why Good Girls Don't Get Ahead but Gutsy Girls Do.
