Meet the Author
Jennifer Owings Dewey is a writer and illustrator of many critically acclaimed natural history books for children and adults, including the award winning Clem, the Story of a Raven, Spiders near and Far, Antarctic Journal, Four Months at the Bottom of the World, Paisano the Roadrunner, and Minik's Story, a novel for middle grade readers about a young Inuit girl living in the 19th Century and encountering white people for the first time. Her audience for most of her work in nonfiction is the child reader between the ages of seven and ten.
Jennifer has written three autobiographical novels set in New Mexico, where she
was raised. These novels are considered suitable for young adult readers.
Jennifer's titles reflect her interest in science and the natural world. While she is not a trained scientist she has personally researched all of her titles to ensure accuracy.
Among the honors Jennifer has received is the National Science Teachers Association award for an outstanding body of work in the field of nonfiction for children. For Rattlesnake Dance she received the Spur award. For Wildlife Rescue, the story of a veterinarian known for her extraordinary work with injured wildlife, she received the Orbis Pictus Award given by the National Association of English Teachers.
While awards are wonderful and rewarding to receive, Jennifer expresses that much of the pleasure she experiences as a writer and illustrator comes from doing the research and turning this effort into words and images on paper.
At present she is working on a true story of being lost on a desert in southern New Mexico, the Jornada del Muerto, or Journey of Death. This story will be suitable for both children and adults.
