Kaoru Mori (森薫 Mori Kaoru ?, born 18 September 1978) is a Japanese manga artist from Tokyo. She is the creator of popular manga such as Shirley, and Emma. Her work is typically set in Britain, and centers on characters who are maids. She also writes dōjinshi under the penname Fumio Agata (県 文緒 ?).[1]

Mori is not only famous for her storytelling and art, she is also famous for her unflattering self-portraits, usually an outline for a body, and a head with wild hair. She is also shy of making public appearances or giving interviews in person.[1]
