Kate White: From Cosmopolitan EIC to Bestselling Author

Kate White‘s books have topped The New York Times bestsellers list and Amazon. She’s written career guides and novels, recently released her first thriller Hush, and even had her popular Bailey Weggins mystery series optioned for films. Oh, and did we mention that her day job is running Cosmopolitan?

“I started writing mysteries and thrillers, and I love it. It’s just been something that has really been fulfilling,” White said in our Media Beat interview. “Like a lot of women, I wanted to do more than one thing. But it did take a few tricks to learn how to balance and do both of them.”

Trick #1: Figure out your “writer’s cocktail.”
