 Joan Marie Galat Biography

Award winning and best selling author, Joan Marie Galat, shares her love of the night sky in the Dot to Dot in the Sky series, which offers both modern-day astronomy and the stories ancient cultures told to explain night sky phenomena. Joan's writing career began at the age of 12 when she was hired to write a weekly newspaper column. Today she is a bestselling and international award winning author with more than a dozen traditionally published books, as well as foreign translations. Joan’s books include back cover endorsements from Chris Hadfield, Dr. Roberta Bondar, and other astronauts, as well as science and media professionals. A frequent presenter, Joan spoke at a United Nations Environmental Programme talk concert—A Special Rendezvous of the Environment and the Arts—in Seoul. Her speech, The Nature of Night, revealed the relationship between art and science in our Earth and sky environment. Joan’s topics often reflect her captivation with science, stories, and the night sky. In addition to astronomy and mythology, her books explore ecology, nature, light pollution, history, travel, and stress management. She has written hundreds of articles for newspapers and magazines, and worked as a magazine editor, radio announcer, and writer-in-residence.

A professional storyteller, Joan is devoted to promoting literacy, creativity, scientific interest, concern for dark skies, and appreciation for the environment. She encourages aspiring authors with talks on publishing and the writer’s life, and offers a motivational keynote based on her book, Give Yourself a Pep Talk. Joan operates MoonDot Media, a communications business offering writing and editing solutions in broadcast, print, and multi-media.

Joan may be the world’s tallest author. She takes part in festivals as a stilt-walker, and has been known to bring her stilts to school presentations. Towering nearly nine feet over her audience, she reinforces literacy by explaining how reading led her to stilt-walking and other adventures.

Looking up at the Moon has inspired explorers and dreamers for eons, floating as a beacon of endless mystery. It lured me into space. The largest Dot in the night sky is the Moon, and its facts and mysteries are beautifully connected in Dot to Dot in the Sky, Stories of the Moon.”

Chris Hadfield, astronaut
