About the Author

She grew up in New York City, spending days at the zoos, museums, and the planetarium. At night, she had a little globe that projected stars on her bedroom ceiling. After a successful advertising career, Jennifer began writing for Nick Jr. magazine and writing books about the subjects she loves most--our amazing universe and the people who discover its secrets. She lives in the beautiful rolling hills of Columbia County, New York, in a house she designed herself. You can visit her online at www.jenniferberne.com.
