Agent: Broo Doherty
Tat has never had a proper job in her life.
Raised amidst the dark satanic tea rooms of Ilkley, West Yorkshire, she left as soon as she could to answer a calling as London's grumpiest and most ineffectual PA.
She couldn't work out a spreadsheet, but my! she could boil a kettle.
Promoted out of harm's way, Tat became an Advertising Copywriter and that kept her busy for a good stretch. But the endless games of pool in open plan, loft-style work spaces inevitably took their toll and to avoid burn-out she turned, instead, to the glamorous and lucrative world of cartooning.
Tat's cartoons have appeared in Private Eye, the Oldie, the Guardian and as Cath Tate Cards. She is a regular contributor to My Shrewsbury Magazine, home to her strip Round the Bend, based on the wildfowl on Shrewbury's stretch of the River Severn.
Tat lives in Shrewsbury with a husband and two sons (probably hers) who like to break things so she has something to do.
