Kelle Z. Riley



Kelle Z. Riley, writer, speaker, global traveler, Ph.D. chemist, inventor, and martial arts expert has been featured in local newspapers and on national television. Her varied life experiences have all found their way into her writing.

In addition to her cozy mystery and contemporary romance fiction, she is a contributing author to "Chicken Soup for the Soul: Living with Alzheimer's and Other Dementias."

In the Undercover Cat Mysteries, a cupcake baking scientist turns sleuth—and much more. The Cupcake Caper; Shaken, Not Purred; The Tiger's Tale; and Studying Scarlett the Grey, as well as several short stories set in the Undercover Cat world are available at digital retailers or wherever books are sold.

In the award-winning Riches and Royals series, modern career women fall for princes-in-disguise, only to discover that “happily ever after” isn’t guaranteed. Can love transform their adventures into glittering fairy tales, or will their hearts shatter like glass slippers?

A Golden Heart and Feathered Quill finalist, Kelle is a popular speaker and member of the Chattanooga Writer's Guild, Romance Writers of America, and Sisters in Crime.
