After teaching elementary school for several years, Cathy Vasas-Brown's thoughts drifted to murder and in 2001, her first novel, Every Wickedness was published by Doubleday Canada. It was nominated for an Arthur Ellis Award for best first crime novel and had people who take blood thinners very worried. Cathy's second thriller, Some Reason in Madness, was published in 2004.
Critics have claimed that Cathy "writes a slick, straightforward tale" with a "sinuous plot as her stories gallop to a climax." Though Cathy has been described as a writer who "shows a talent for great gore," she has a very soft spot for animals (and she like people, too). She spends quality time with her two cats, Spike and Arthur, and she misses the company of the four felines no longer with her--Sherlock, Watson, Moriarty and Holmes.
When not writing, she enjoys traveling, in-line skating, playing cards, cooking and going to concerts. She has been known to dance as if no one is watching. Cathy credits her lat father with giving her a love of music and puzzles; her late mother blessed her with an appreciation for nature and the gift of storytelling. Cathy's husband, Al, gets an A-plus for simply best the best partner on life's exciting journey.
