As a nature lover and an “animal person” with an insatiable curiosity, writing about environmental topics suits me perfectly. My passion reverberates clearly in my lovingly detailed books. Teachers and students even call me “The Green Author.”
As a child, I regularly brought home creatures large and small and attempted to nurse them back to health, although not always to great success. Over the years, I’ve learned that in order to truly help animals, I not only need more information, but the best way to use it. Now I’m using this supportive spirit to teach children how they can help wild animals, one at a time.
A presenter and author-in-residence in Maryland schools since 2006, I cannot wait to continue talking with students about writing, editing, research, and of course, the animals. My area of expertise is informational text. Please contact me about a school or organizational visit.
All of my books are available directly through the publishers, online bookstores, and in many retail stores. Of course, I'm always happy to sign books as feasible. Please email me for more information.
My newest books include:

Certified wildlife rehabilitators like Suzanne McBride work hard to ensure that otters and other wild animals can get back to the wild where they belong. However, in some cases, that simply isn’t possible.
Since Bubbles and Squeak were un-releasable, they now happily reside at the Calvert Marine Museum in Solomons Island, Maryland, where they are doted on by aquarists and fans! Jennifer worked with the staff at the museum, as well as Suzanne McBride, to write the realistic fiction, Saving Squeak: The Otter Tale.
River otter, Squeak, star of the book Saving Squeak checks out a young visitor at the Calvert Marine Museum. (Squeak’s “brother” Bubbles is swimming lazily beneath him).
