Jess Hartley – Editor Guest of Honor

Image of Jess HartleyJess Hartley got her start in 2004, editing roleplaying game products for Steampower Publishing, where she was thrilled to discover that her talent for nit-picking and passion for the English language could finally both be put to use.

For the last ten years, Jess Hartley has worked as an editor, novelist, writer, and game developer, working extensively on White Wolf’s New World of Darkness lines, along with Scion, Exalted and the Classic World of Darkness. She’s also done work on the Supernatural RPG line, and Evil Hat’s Dresden Files RPG lineup. Jess produces and writes “One Geek to Another“, an ENnie-nominated etiquette and advice column for modern geeks, and authored “Conventions for the Aspiring Game Professional”, a guide for using face-to-face interactions to get a foot-in-the-door in creative industries.

In her copious (HAH!) spare time, Jess LARPs, plays SCA, and spends time with her family and a menagerie of other interesting creatures. More information about Jess can be found through her website at www.jesshartley.com, and questions or inquiries can be addressed to “ jess@jesshartley.com”.
