Penny Williams is happy to revisit her old haunts in Lake Geneva for Gary Con.

During her tenure with TSR, Inc. Penny served as Game Questions Expert and head of the RPGA Network. Later with Wizards of the Coast, she worked in the Managing Editor’s office, lending her expertise to a number of role-playing games, including 3rd edition Dungeons & Dragons, Marvel, and Star Wars. Her writing credits include several game adventures plus a few short stories, most of them co-authored with her husband Skip.

Penny still runs two D&D campaigns online, plus occasional face-to-face games—most often at the annual cookie bake held at the ancient crumbling farmhouse she shares with Skip in western Wisconsin. When she is not dispensing her players enough rope to hang themselves, Penny teaches a variety of high school science courses at North Cedar Academy, an international private boarding school in Ladysmith, Wisconsin. She also manages the school’s Game Club, plants/tends/harvests the organic garden, and coordinates the annual Rube Goldberg Machine contest entry.
