For fourteen years she was the editor-in-chief of Cosmopolitan magazine, and though she loved the job (and the Cosmo beauty closet!), she left 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 named as the first Reading with Kelly Ripa selection and soon shot to number one on Amazon. She is published in 13 countries around the world.
Kate is also the editor of the 2016 Mystery Writers of America cookbook, a selection of recipes from the field's top-selling authors.
