Reina Ollivier (Ukkel, Belgium, 1956) studied German languages at the University of Brussels (KUB) and Leuven (KUL). She combined writing with teaching at secondary schools, but now she is a fulltime author and (crowned) translator. Young children have an open mind and are longing to learn, that's why Reina loves to give the information in an attractive and playful manner. At Clavis Publishing Company she worked at the Willewete-series and together with Dixie Dancercoeur she wrote the thrilling series about Emma Dewitt and her adventures in the polar regions against the background of climate change, for children ages 10 years and up.
