Cathy Wiley is happiest when plotting stories in her head or on the computer, or when she’s delving into research.  She holds a BA in Journalism, with a minor in English, from the University of Maryland.

She published two mystery novels, Dead to Writes and Two Wrongs Don't Make a Write, in the Cassie Ellis mystery series set in Baltimore, Maryland.

She’s also had three stories accepted for publication in anthologies published by the Chesapeake Chapter of Sisters in Crime:  “Dead Men Tell No Tales” in Chesapeake Crimes: Homicidal Holidays (which was nominated for a Derringer) and “Miked for Murder” in Chesapeake Crimes: This Job Is Murder. “Curiosity Killed the Cat Lady” will be published in Chesapeake Crimes: Fur, Feathers, and Felonies in April 2018.

She is a member of Sisters in Crime, a former president of the SinC Chesapeake Chapter, and a member of Mystery Writers of America.

She lives outside of Baltimore, Maryland, with one spoiled cat and an equally spoiled husband.  She and her husband greatly enjoy attending food festivals around the country, combining their love of travel with their love of food.
