Kate Dresser, Editor


Interests: Kate loves a book with a strong sense of place and interesting, dynamic female-driven stories. She’s especially looking for accessible literary fiction, book club books, emotional relationship stories, historical fiction, twisty thriller/suspense, self-aware self-help, feminist fiction, nonfiction and nonfiction that appeals to a fiction reader, including pop culture, memoir, and humor.


Authors: Erica Ferencik, Amy E. Reichert, The Betches, Clinton Kelly, Reggie Nadelson, Julia Sonneborn, Lisi Harrison


Bio: Kate launched her editorial career at Pocket Books in 2008, and after a brief sojourn at Harlequin, returned to Gallery in 2014. A graduate of Notre Dame, she lives in Harlem with a series of not-hardy-enough goldfish and loves to see her books in the wild. Kate believes intensely in the author-editor relationship, meeting deadlines, and the Oxford comma.
