Kate White Bio
Kate White is the New York Times bestselling author of twelve works of fiction: seven Bailey Weggins mysteries, including the upcoming Even If It Kills Her (October 31, ’17), and five stand-alone psychological thrillers, including most recently, The Secrets You Keep (March ’17). For fourteen years she was the editor-in-chief of Cosmopolitan magazine, and though she loved the job (and the Cosmo beauty closet!), she decided to leave in late 2013 to concentrate full time on being an author and speaker.
Her books have received starred reviews from many publications and she has been covered everywhere from The Today Show to The New York Times. Her debut Bailey Weggins mystery, If Looks Could Kill, was selected as the first “Reading with Kelly Ripa” pick and soon shot to number one on Amazon. She is published in 13 countries around the world. Her next Bailey Weggins mystery, Even If It Kills Her, will debut in October 2017.
Kate is also the editor of the acclaimed Mystery Writers of America Cookbook, a selection of recipes from the field’s top-selling authors.
Like many female 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 the cliffhanger chapter endings the series is known for.
In addition to writing mysteries and thrillers, Kate is the author of several very popular and best selling 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.
