Kristin, The Second Chapter :Today I’m talking to Kate MacDougall. Kate’s career has taken her from acting (too tall) to Sotheby’s (too clumsy) to dogs (too many human owners!). Now, Kate writes for magazines on her several specialist subjects and her first book was released in April… Kristin : Hi, Kate, how are you doing today? Kate: I'm really good. How are you? Kristin : I'm well thank you so much for being here. It's been a long time coming. Kate: It has, Kristin : Yeah.
