There are so many fascinating Kates out there. And every week, Kate-book.com is resolving to introduce you to a new one. This week, I thought we’d take a minute to get to know Kate Richlin-Zack of Bernardsville, New Jersey, who is currently looking for an excuse to move to New York City. Yes, technically you already know a lot about her because she writes the amazing relationship column Kate’s Dates. But it’s high time to back up and get to know the basics. Without further ado, 13 questions with Kate.
What do you do for a living?
You name it, I’ve done it. I started working at 13 and I think I’ve had every job you can imagine. I worked at Victoria’s Secret and spent more money on underwear than I earned working there. I was a tap dance instructor, secretary, office manager, assistant piano teacher, and mailroom clerk. I also sequenced DNA before I was legally old enough to drink. There were times in my life when I dated like it was my job.
But the only thing I’ve ever done consistently was write.
How did you fall into writing?
I’ve had a journal since I was 8-years-old and I still write almost every day.
