How They Came to Us
Joanna will never forget the day she was first introduced to Kate’s writing. She was up in the middle of the night with her newborn son scrolling Facebook when she came across a piece Kate had written for HuffPo about the precarious balance that is being a writer and a new mom. Kate’s raw honesty was incredible and resonated with Joanna – and she wasn’t the only one. The pieces had been shared over 30, 000 times. So Joanna reached out to see if Kate had an agent and if she was working on any book projects. She still remembers their introductory call, which Joanna took in an underground diner across the street from Simon & Schuster’s offices on a snowy day between meetings. They hit it off and have been working together ever since.
Kate Baer is a writer and poet based on the East Coast. Her work has regularly been featured on Joanna Goddard’s Cup of Jo and Huffington Post. What Kind of Woman is her first book.
