Jennifer Keats Curtis
Children’s author Jennifer Keats Curtis wants to help bring children closer to the animals in their own backyards. By diligently researching her topic and interviewing real experts, including children working to help preserve and protect local wildlife, the long-time journalist has developed a knack for teaching young children about important ecological issues and what they can do to help.

A University of Maryland graduate, Jennifer can often be found among students and teachers talking about literacy and conservation. She regularly presents writing workshops and author residencies to students. She serves as editor-at-large for Maryland Life Magazine and recently took on the role of editor for an exciting new magazine for middle school students.

Jennifer resides in the Annapolis area, with her family, amidst several animals, most of them small.
