Kate White        

Former Editor-In-Chief of Cosmopolitan Magazine; New York Times Best-Selling Author

Kate White is the New York Times and Wall Street Journal bestselling author of seventeen novels of suspense: nine standalone psychological thrillers, including "The Secrets You Keep," "The Second Husband," and "Between Two Strangers" (May ‘23), and eight "Bailey Weggins" mysteries.

For fourteen years White served as the editor-in-chief of Cosmopolitan, which under her became the most successful magazine in single copy sales in the U.S. Though she loved her magazine career, she decided to leave ten years ago to concentrate full-time on another passion: writing suspense fiction.

White’s first mystery, "If Looks Could Kill," was an instant New York Times bestseller, a Kelly Ripa Book Club pick, and a #1 bestseller on Amazon. She has received and been nominated for many awards in her media career, including an International Thriller Writers Award. Her books have been published in over 30 countries worldwide.

White is a frequent speaker at libraries, book conferences and organizations, and has also appeared on many television shows, including The Today Show, CBS This Morning, Morning Joe, and Good Morning America.

She is also the author of several bestselling 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 the ground-breaking Wall Street Journal bestseller, "Why Good Girls Don’t Get Ahead but Gutsy Girls Do."

White has a certificate from the Harvard Business School Executive Education Women’s Leadership Forum and was awarded an honorary doctorate of letters from Union College, where she gave the 2022 commencement speech.
