Biography

Kate White

Kate White is the New York Times bestselling author of nine works of fiction --- six Bailey Weggins mysteries and three suspense novels, including EYES ON YOU, which will be published in June. For 14 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.

Her books have received starred reviews from a variety of publications and she has been covered everyplace from "The Today Show" to The New York Times. Her first Bailey Weggins mystery, IF LOOKS COULD KILL, was named as the premier Reading with Rippa selection and soon shot to number one on Amazon. (And it’s now being made into an opera!). She is published in 18 countries around the world.

Kate is currently editing the Mystery Writers of America cookbook, a selection of recipes from many of the top-selling authors.

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 that “Carolyn Keene” created.

She is married and the mother of two children, and once had her daughter stalk her through the woods so she could better describe the sounds of someone being followed.

Kate is also the author of several very 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.
