Kate McGuinness, "Terminal Ambition"

Kate McGuinness studied writing at the University of Southern California under the tutelage of Janet Fitch, who authored the Oprah Book Club selection "White Oleander." Kate pursued further studies in creative writing at the University of California, Los Angeles. Previously she'd earned a Juris Doctor degree from the University of San Diego. Before leaving the corporate world to tackle fiction-writing, Kate practiced law for 17 years at a major international law firm, where she was one of a handful of women to achieve coveted partnership status. Later, a Fortune 500 company recruited Kate to serve as its General Counsel. Today she's a full-time writer who advocates for women's rights. Her essays on women's issues have appeared in Forbes Woman, The Women's Media Center, Jezebel, Role/Reboot, Ms. JD, The Girls Guide to Law School, and Fem2pt0. Her first published novel, Terminal Ambition, a legal thriller that explores issues of sexual harassment and discrimination, was published by Kate's publishing company Two XX Press in 2012.
