About the Author
Jen Rose Smith came to Vermont for the mountains and lake, then stayed for everything else. She spends her time exploring the state on bicycles and backcountry skis with her husband, Daniel, searching out the sweetest picnic spots, swimming holes, and snack bars.
Jen is a freelance writer whose work on travel, food, and drink has appeared in Best of Burlington, Local Banquet of Vermont, Vermont Magazine, Traveler's Tales: Best Women's Travel Writing, Culinate, and Overnight Buses. Since settling in Vermont, she's continued to travel extensively, hunting iguanas in Mexico, cooking in Italy, and riding her bicycle across Newfoundland's wilderness. Her adventures in Vermont while researching and writing this book have been just as compelling, and there's no other place she'd rather live.
