Kate Shoup grew up reading under the covers with a flashlight well past her bedtime. Now, Kate does more than just read books—she edits and writes them, too. For more than 20 years Kate has worked as an independent publishing professional. She has written more than 50 books on a mish-mash of topics and edited hundreds more. When not working, Kate likes to travel, ski, and ride her motorcycle. She also moonlights as a motorsports photographer on the IndyCar circuit. (You can see her photos here.) Oh—and she still loves to read.
