About the Author

Cathy Ace was born and raised in Swansea, South Wales, and migrated to Canada in 2000. Having traveled the world for both business and pleasure for many years, Cathy put her knowledge of the cultures, history, art and food she encountered to good use in The Cait Morgan Mysteries - a series of traditional closed-circle murder mysteries featuring globetrotting professor of criminal psychology (and foodie) sleuth, Cait Morgan. Ace's other series is set in her native Wales: The WISE Enquiries Agency Mysteries feature four female professional investigators (one Is Welsh, one Irish, one Scottish and one English). They tackle quirky - and quintessentially British - cases from their base at a Welsh stately home, the ancient seat of the Dukes of Chellingworth, set in the rolling countryside of Powys, near the picturesque village of Anwen-by-Wye. Cathy now lives in British Columbia, where her ever-supportive husband and chocolate Labrador ensure she's able to work full-time as an author, and enjoy her other passion - gardening. Bestselling author Ace has been shortlisted for the Bony Blithe Award for Best Light Mystery written by a Canadian three times in four years, winning in 2015; she was also shortlisted for the Arthur Ellis Award for Best Short Story in 2017. Two of her short stories have been produced for BBC Radio 4.
