About The Author - Kristen Bottger


Hi! I'm a science enthusiast! I'm also a mother of two inquisitive girls and enjoy writing children's stories that entertain, engage and educate. I recognize how stories can often teach better than textbooks, so I decided to create a fun series to get elementary-aged kids curious about the magic of science.


I'm a third generation San Diego native (yes, my family remembers when Escondido was mostly orange groves and Carlsbad a sleepy seaside village)!  I received my B.S. in Biology from Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo... Go Mustangs!... and I live in San Diego's North County with my husband, daughters and two sweeter than sweet rescued greyhounds.  

I hope you enjoy The Secret Laboratory!  I really love reading your comments however short or long, so don't be shy! 


Thank you for visiting my site!
