We are pleased to announce that Jennifer Adams Kelley will be attending CONsole Room 2017 as a Featured Guest!
JENNIFER ADAMS KELLEY discovered Doctor Who her senior year in high school (1981), and the show has molded her adult life. She ties life milestones in with what was going on vis a vis Doctor Who and the show’s fannish events she participated in. She plans trips around Doctor Who exhibitions and events. Her skills and hobbies—writing, filmmaking, website designing, and costuming—come in use when creating fan films, Doctor Who-related websites, and cosplay.
A 1985 graduate of Northwestern University (B.S. Speech, double-major in radio/tv/film and Creative Writing for the Media), Jennifer worked in customer service and marketing prior to tackling the full-time job of raising a child. Since said child now attends college, Jennifer divides her time between book promotion, Gallifrey Base (which she partly owns), and personal projects. She has essays in Chicks Dig Time Lords, Companion Piece, Outside In, Outside In 2, Outside In Boldly Goes, and the forthcoming Outside In Makes It So. Jennifer also served as Masquerade Director/Special Events Manager for HME Visions (1990-1998) and Programming Director of Chicago TARDIS (2000-2017), and currently runs the Gallifrey One Masquerade of Mandragora. She was also named Fan of the Year by the Friends of Doctor Who in 1996.
