Writer: Technology, Space, Animals, Whimsy

Kristen Bobst is a freelance writer based in Los Angeles.  She’s a graduate of The University of Southern California’s Writing for Screen and Television MFA program.

Kristen’s professional experience includes writing scripts for educational iOS apps, ghostwriting, and working the outer space beat for a variety of websites.

Kristen has sold the rights to a YA property about girls in STEM which is forthcoming.


If you like space (and cats): Find her online journalism here: Teen Vogue,  Paste Magazine,  The Mother Nature Network, The Mary Sue, & Adventure Cats.

If you like gadgets: View the product launch videos she co-wrote here: KeeckerPogoCam, & SuperSuit.

If you like educational kids apps with lots of talking animals: Check out: MigaloloThe Rainforest Musical, & the App Growth Award nominated Miniwalla.


For pure pointless fun, Kristen runs two blogs: Sock Puppet Burlesque & Off-Kilter-Critters, which are exactly what they sound like.

At one curious point in history, she wrote “Klingon Style,” a video which went viral because, well, the Internet  ¯\_(ツ)_/¯


In her free time, Kristen volunteers at Wallis Annenberg PetSpace which, if you are in LA, is a great place to visit on account of the adorable/adoptable dogs, cats, and rabbits.


She also has written a novel about a financially-savvy hedgehog and has another book about a four-legged middle-grade hero waiting to pounce.
