Kate O’Connell is the author of the Maddie Fitzpatrick Dance Mysteries published by Cozy Cat Press. Kate studied in both the U.K. and the U.S. and earned degrees in theatre arts and dance history. While conducting her doctoral research, Kate taught and performed Argentine Tango which is where the inspiration for her cozy mystery series originated, allowing her to combine her knowledge of dance and her love of a good mystery.

The first book in the series, Dying to Dance, came out in 2014, followed by Dead Man Dancing in 2015. Kate is busy with the final touches to the third title, Dance or Die, coming out in December 2016. The series can be found both in print and digital formats at Amazon and Barnes & Noble.
