New York Times Best-Selling Author &
National Geographic Contributing Writer

I’m Jennifer Holland—thanks for stopping by my website. I hope you find what you’re looking for here.

I’m available for speaking engagements! For more information, please contact Carol Schneider at Workman’s Speakers’ Bureau,

If you have time, please watch/listen to this video about my very cool creature mascot, the cuttlefish.

Finally, a little about my work: I write about everything from parasites to primates, from volcanoes to venom, from stem cells to acid seas. As the youngest of the senior staff writers at National Geographic magazine, I produced more than 50 features and news pieces over some 10 years, plus a best-selling book. I left the staff to pursue several more book projects while keeping my hand in NGM as a contributing writer. I now spend most of my days tapping away at the keyboard in my sun-filled home office, dogs at my feet.

Please poke around this site to see more about who I am and what I’ve done—and to order my books! If you need additional information, shoot me an email. If I’m out muddying my boots somewhere far away—which I hope I am—I’ll reply as soon as I’m home again.
