Angela Oliver, "LemurKat", is an author and illustrator. She loves cute and quirky, weird and wonderful, wildlife, and they often find a way to creep into her stories. Angela Oliver has a BSc in zoology and psychology, and enjoys adventuring around the world: visiting such places as Australia, Hawaii, and Madagascar. She resides in the garden city of Christchurch, New Zealand.

Angela Oliver has two novels to her name: "Aroha's Grand Adventure", an animal adventure story set in New Zealand, and "Fellowship of the Ringtails", the first in the series described as "epic fantasy, with lemurs". She does not tend to write human characters, favoring the challenge of non-human protagonists.

Her miniature works of art can be found in private collection
