Kate Worley was an American comic book writer best known for her work on Omaha the Cat Dancer. Omaha was created by Reed Waller, Worley's husband, and after the first issue (which he wrote alone) together she wrote and he drew the series.

Omaha later went on hiatus when Worley and Waller were both injured in a car accident; this hiatus was greatly extended when they had an acrimonious divorce, after which they refused to work together.

Worley married Jim Vance, another comic book writer known for his work on Kings in Disguise, and they had two children. In 2002, Worley was diagnosed with cancer; she and Waller reconciled enough to produce several more issues of Omaha before she succumbed in 2004.

Date of Birth: March 16, 1958

Date of death: June 6, 2004
