Kelly Guentner-Edwards has too many hobbies, much to her long-suffering husband’s chagrin. She is an author, a cosplayer, a podcaster, and the chairwoman of the Multiverse FunRaiser. She will talk your ear off about Black Canary or the role of comics in shaping American history if you’ll let her, so watch out!
“You may have found your way here for any number of reasons. Whatever brought you here, welcome to my little corner of the internet! It’s not hard to find me all across social media, but this is a nice centralized location for all that I do.”
Kelly is in the middle of the Forces of Nature Trilogy, written under the pen name of Kelly Edwards. The first book, Scorcher, is available now.
Thin Ice is a follow-up to Scorcher and will be released mid-summer 2022.
Supervillains are people too. They’re not always megalomaniacs with dreams of world domination. Sometimes they’re just people doing whatever they must to get by. Aidan Grey is a college student with goals for the future, a drive to succeed, and little time for romance. She’s also a woman with a secret.
You can purchase Kelly’s books via Amazon, Barnes and Noble, or you can use the order form at the bottom of the page to request a signed copy for $20 total (that includes the cost of shipping within the US-anything outside the US will have separate shipping costs).
Cosplay Cafe is a podcast that is focused on bringing positivity to the cosplay world.
Each episode features a different guest and theme, and the Cosplay Cafe baristas invite guests and viewers to build each other up, sharing their love of the hobby and those we meet thanks to the magic of costuming.
Kelly is also a co-host of Back of the Cereal Box, most frequently seen on the Back Issue Breakfast Club segments. Back of the Cereal Box is the flagship show of The Cereal Box Network.
View Back Issue Breakfast Club anywhere that the Cereal Box Network can be found.
The Multiverse FunRaiser
The Multiverse FunRaiser is an annual virtual convention/charity fundraiser that features celebrities, comic-con style panels, and a focus on giving back to a good cause while also putting some joy and fun out to the community.
We started doing this in the middle of the pandemic as a way to help recreate the convention experience for those of us who were feeling isolated.
After organizing a few events though, we realized it was a fun way to do charity work, while still being accessible to people who can’t make it to large, in-person events, even as things start to return to ‘normal’ (whatever that may be).
So now we choose a different charity focus each year and keep the party going.
Cosplay is one of Kelly’s main passions. She loves everything about it, from the planning stages of a new costume to the end result of wearing a costume around a con, to staging photo shoots, and everything in between.
She’s one-half of the cosplay duo, Phoenix Sisters Cosplay, with her best friend Crayle Vanest.
They run a Patreon together, cohost Cosplay Cafe (along with their good friend Andrea Starnes), and basically just collaborate on so many things it’s ridiculous.
Kelly says, “Crayle makes me better and I love her for it.”
