My background is in book publishing; I worked in-house as an editor for twelve years, most recently as an editorial director at Penguin Random House, before going freelance as an editor and author in 2014. I discovered the girls' story through directing These Shining Lives by Melanie Marnich, which dramatizes the Ottawa dial-painters' experiences. The story really resonated with me. Through my research to make my theatre production authentic, I realized no book existed that told the story from the girls' perspective. I felt passionately about ensuring they were remembered and the individual women celebrated, which is how the book came to be. (less)

I'm always writing books, but they're not always under my own name as I act as a ghostwriter too. I hope one day to write something similar to The Radium Girls again, but it's important to me to find a story that resonates. (less)

Kate’s Recent Updates

“The cynical would say there was only one reason a high-profile specialist finally took up the cause. On June 7, 1925, the first male employee of the United States Radium Corporation died.”
Kate Moore, The Radium Girls: The Dark Story of America's Shining Women

“And Grace Fryer was never forgotten. She is still remembered now—you are still remembering her now. As a dial-painter, she glowed gloriously from the radium powder; but as a woman, she shines through history with an even brighter glory: stronger than the bones that broke inside her body; more powerful than the radium that killed her or the company that shamelessly lied through its teeth; living longer than she ever did on earth, because she now lives on in the hearts and memories of those who know her only from her story.

Grace Fryer: the girl who fought on when all hope seemed gone; the woman who stood up for what was right, even as her world fell apart. Grace Fryer, who inspired so many to stand up for themselves.”
Kate Moore, The Radium Girls: The Dark Story of America's Shining Women

“My body means nothing but pain to me,” Grace revealed, “and it might mean longer life or relief to the others, if science had it. It’s all I have to give.”
Kate Moore, The Radium Girls: The Dark Story of America's Shining Women
