The Executive Editor of People Magazine provides an unfiltered and hilarious look at her life alongside the rich and famous, as she reveals how being a fan-girl lead to celebrity close encounters she could only dream of growing up.

From the NY Post’s “Page Six” to Good Housekeeping and now People, Kate Coyne has spent years on the front lines of the entertainment industry, feeding our insatiable appetite for celebrity news and gossip. I’M YOUR BIGGEST FAN chronicles her journey from red-carpet reporter to upper-level editor and the countless surreal, surprising, and awkward interactions she had with stars along the way. Featuring A-listers such as Michael Douglas (who warned her about tabloid reporting), Tom Cruise (whose behavior will surprise you) and Tom Hanks (who, yes, is wonderful) Coyne’s stories reveal insights about pop culture’s biggest icons-and the journalist who has followed their every move.


  • "Kate Coyne's funny, warm-hearted stories about her dances with the stars is a delectable, candy-coated treat. From a gut check about Monica Lewinsky to lavish lunches with Wynonna to stern admonishments from Michael Douglas and long days with Kate Gosselin, Coyne emerges as a wry, knowing guide through our celebrity-obsessed culture. If you, like me, have a lifetime subscription to People and a lifelong obsession with boldfaced names, pick this up, and you'll become Kate Coyne's biggest fan."
    Jennifer Weiner, bestselling author, Who Do You Love

    Entertainment Weekly

  • "[A] rollicking, anecdote-filled, star-studded recap of her career sprinkled with celebrities, red carpets, photo shoots and close encounters with movie, TV and music A-list-ers."
  • "Kate Coyne tells all in I'm Your Biggest Fan, her honest, funny, and insider-y new memoir of her years chasing stars....You'll want to dig into all this dish!"
    Good Housekeeping
  • "Always hilarious."
  • "With humor, heart, and acknowledgement of the absurdity of it all, Coyne...shares behind the scenes stories...just made for beach reading."
    Real Simple
  • "A breezy collection of stories about Hollywood stars...[that] also gets into the nitty-gritty of the tabloid world--from a look behind-the-scenes at the tawdry Page Six to how far magazines will go to get a star on their cover...the book is best when Coyne mixes the media inside details with bizarre anecdotes about celebrities."
