Sarah Jane Vowell (born December 27, 1969) is an American author, essayist, humorist, and occasional voice actress (she played Violet Parr in The Incredibles and Incredibles 2).

The grand majority of her writing focuses on American history with the exception of two of her books, Take the Connoli: Stories from the New World and The Partly Cloudy Patriot, which are a collection of essays. She loves to commentate American society and she has made appearances on The Daily Show; her stories have also appeared on This American Life, and are widely collected in anthologies (including some School Study Media, e.g. The Bedford Reader).

Vowell is one-eighth Cherokee and the fact frequently shows up in her works. In Take the Connoli, she actually follows the Trail of Tears.
