Kate, a fifth-generation Texan, was born and raised in Dallas. She graduated from Northwestern University with a Bachelor of Arts in history and earned a Juris Doctorate from the University of Texas at Austin School of Law.
Kate practiced law for several years at a large firm in Chicago. She left the practice to stay home with her young daughter and pursue her dream of writing. More babies arrived and took up more time than she imagined, and not much writing took place. She finally pulled out a rusty manuscript in the summer of 2019 and has been writing ever since.
Kate resides in Florida with her husband and three children. Her debut novel, Hello, Goodbye, released on August 2, 2022.
