Six years ago, Kate White resigned from her job as Editor-in-Chief of Cosmopolitan, the #1 women’s media brand in the world, to become a full time author of murder mysteries and thrillers. A bit of a crazy ass pivot, but she’s loved writing full time and also the personal freedom it has offered her.
Are you feeling at all restless in your work? Have you toyed with the idea of reinvention but aren’t sure where to start. In this talk, Kate will share four strategies she’s learned from her own career as well as from talking to other women who have reinvented successfully at a variety of ages. Her strategies include not only identifying what your reinvention should be but also how to get it off the ground.
Kate White, the former editor-in-chief of five national magazines, including Cosmopolitan for 14 years, is the New York Times bestselling author of eight Bailey Weggins mysteries, including Such a Perfect Wife (May), and five stand-alone psychological thrillers, including The Secrets You Keep. She is also the author of several bestselling career books for women, including The Gutsy Girl Handbook.
Blonde. Beautiful. A loving mother.
And missing since Monday.
On a sunny morning in late September, Shannon Blaine sets off for a jog along the rural roads near her home in Lake George, New York. It’s her usual a.m. routine, her “me time” after dropping the kids off at school…except on this day she never returns.
Is her husband lying when he says he has no clue where she is? Could Shannon have split on her own, overwhelmed by the pressures of her life? Or is she the victim of a sexual predator who had been prowling the area and snatched her before she knew what was happening.
True crime writer Bailey Weggins, on assignment for the website Crime Beat, heads north from New York City to report on the mysterious disappearance. An anonymous tip soon leads Bailey to a grisly, bone-chilling discovery. Every town has its secrets, Bailey reminds herself, and nothing is ever as perfect as it seems. She keeps digging for answers until—when it’s almost too late—she unearths the terrifying truth.
