Ashley Michelle Balzer is a space studies grad student and freelance writer. She writes educational books for children, poetry and articles.
Ever since the 6th grade, Ashley has been enraptured by the night sky and all that the universe contains. This interest was sparked simply by a friend's desire to look at pictures in an astronomy book. Ashley then began to ravenously read all of the books on astronomy she could get her hands on, religiously taking notes. This passion has never abated.
She now collects the classics (by Galileo, Kepler, Copernicus, etc) and uses them to supplement her studies and scientific articles. Her aim is to publish her books, obtain a doctoral degree in planetary science, and work for NASA.
