  • Kitty is a glamorous, wildly ambitious senior executive at Austen Media where she oversees many magazines including Daisy Chain, which she was instrumental in launching and building and therefore holds a special place in her heart. Passive-aggressive, self-involved, and impassioned in the most superficial way possible, Kitty feels a unique connection with her readers, whom she affectionately calls “my girls” and is convinced she’s really helping them.

    Her world is thrown into complete chaos when an unknown organization starts targeting people in her orbit. Sucked into a terrifying news cycle, Kitty can no longer rely on her old-school media power and must instead play a whole new game of master manipulation where rules no longer apply.
