Jen de Oliveira is a writer and cartoonist from California. She is the creator of the all-ages webcomic Reggie. After earning a Bachelor’s Degree in Animation and Illustration from San Jose State University, Jen worked in animation production before pursuing her love of children’s books.

When she’s not cartooning, Jen teaches at an elementary school, where she’s also (happily) surrounded by books. She teaches first grade, as well as an after school cartooning class.

Jen lives in the East Bay with her husband and three cats. They often can be found hiking or biking on one of the many nearby regional trails. (Not the cats, though — they sleep most of the day.)

Follow Jen on Instagram or Twitter for updates — and plenty of cat pictures.
