Cathy Brett has been scribbling for ages – as a fashion illustrator, a jet-setting spotter of global trends, and a consultant to the British high street. Her work has appeared in magazines, newspapers, department store windows, glossy cosmetics - and even on beach towels. She is now a full time author and illustrator published by OUP, Headline and Barrington Stoke.

Cathy is the illustrator of the Electrigirl series written by Jo Cotteril (OUP). She has also written and illustrated graphic fiction for SCOOP magazine; her contributions include revolutionary tale Scarlett, Pip & Nell, and Lily Li (written by Lucy Coats) which tells the story of a determined detective, thrown in the deep end.
