About Me

I am a reporter, writer and reviewer specializing in science and natural history, with a longtime interest in zoos, museums, animals and conservation.  For several years I worked as an environmental reporter in Florida, where I developed many of the contacts needed to write Stolen World; currently I write for the Wall Street Journal, the Times Literary Supplement, McSweeney's, and other publications. Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you care to. Many thanks for visiting! Jennie Erin Smith
