Kate White Bio
Kate White is the New York Times bestselling author of twelve novels of suspense: seven Bailey Weggins mysteries, including Even If It Kills Her, and five psychological thrillers, including The Secrets You Keep.
For fourteen years she served as the editor-in-chief of Cosmopolitan magazine, and though she loved the job (and the Cosmo beauty closet!), she decided to leave in late 2012 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.
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 popular and best selling career books. Her next, The Gutsy Girl Handbook, will be published in April ’18.
