About the Editor


Meet Kate White!

Kate White is the New York Times bestselling author of ten works of fiction—six Bailey Weggins mysteries and four suspense novels, including, Eyes on You, which comes out in paperback this May, and her next novel, The Wrong Man, which will be published in June. For fourteen 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.
