Kate Leth is a bestselling writer and cartoonist, specializing in teen and all-ages stories for both page and screen. You can find her licensed comics work in Patsy Walker AKA Hellcat for Marvel, as well as series such as Vampirella, Girl Over Paris, Edward Scissorhands, Fraggle Rock, three Adventure Time graphic novels and two volumes of Mysticons. Her creator-owned work includes the all-ages Power Up from Boom Studios, the romantic high school adventure School Spirit, and the supernatural teen thriller Spell on Wheels from Dark Horse (volume 2 coming October 2019).

In the realm of animation, Kate has contributed extensively to My Little Pony: Equestria Girls, Littlest Pet Shop: A World of Our Own (both on the Discovery Family app and YouTube), and was a staff writer on season one of Transformers: Cyberverse. Having penned three volumes of the Bravest Warriors comics, she contributed an episode ("Chained to Your Side") to season 4 of the show. She also wrote “The Curse” for Craig of the Creek, co-creating a pair of witches voiced by My Favorite Murder's Karen Kilgariff and Georgia Hardstark. In 2018, she worked on season one of High Guardian Spice with Crunchyroll, release date TBD.

In addition, Kate is a designer and lettering artist, both for herself and for hire. She's done merch work for blockbuster podcasts such as Welcome to Night Vale, The Adventure Zone and Buffering the Vampire Slayer (for which she does biweekly fashion updates) and for authors like Holly Black and Cassandra Clare.

Kate also writes and draws her own comics. Valley Ghouls, a slice-of-afterlife four-panel strip, updates Mondays through Fridays.

Kate lives and works in Burbank, CA.
