Katherine Wessling
’s stories have been heard at Moth Slams, the Next Chapter, You Went to College for That, WNYC, and published in the anthology ‘Have I Got a Guy for You,’ the magazines ‘Speak’ and ‘Swing’ and online at She’s also written for Marie Claire, Elle, CosmoGirl!, etc. Her book for young readers, ‘Backstage at a Movie Set,’ is kind of boring, but the historical section of the tome ‘Women’s Wear Daily: 100 Years, 100 Designers’ is surprisingly not. Katherine’s also an actor who appears in what the kids call ‘downtown theater pieces.’ This month, you can also see her as an abused wife on the just-released DVD, ‘Game Time,’ or as an uptight corporate executive in the corporate comedy series, ‘Cutting Edge.
