On the personal side, Kelly loves ancient history, fantasy, mythology, and Wonder Woman. She's a fan of Indian food, rock & gem collecting, horse riding/training, and her family. She enjoys gaming  and can often be heard shouting, "Where's a healing station when you need it?!" She is passionate about SFF film and television. She extols the virtues of Xena, Dr. Who, Harlock, BSG, and Farscape to unsuspecting, glassy-eyed innocents, and believes that Aeryn Sun and John Crichton are one of the greatest TV couples of all time.
