Katie Lee wears multiple hats. From foodie to celebrity chef, food critic and novelist in-between, the 30-year-old beauty has a lot on her proverbial plate at all times.
Aside from her marriage to best-selling recording artist Billy Joel, Katie is known and respected for her refined professional palate, and now she can add novelist to her resume.
In the midst of her divorce, the former Top Chef host found some not so cliché inspiration in the clichést of places: the beach.
After stepping out of her comfort zone to tackle surfing lessons, Katie found the inspiration that she was seeking to write her first novel, Groundswell, the story of Emma, a girl much like Katie, who finds inspiration on the brink of losing everything.
We had the pleasure of sitting down for a one-on-one with Katie at the GlobalGrind offices to chat about her journey. Check out the video above, and be sure to get your hands on a copy of Katie's compelling novel, Groundswell.
