Maureen Kelly, a retired University Head of Department, is Chairman of the Jane Austen Society Scottish Branch. She has been a member of JASNA since 2010 and has given two presentations to JASNA AGMs – one a Special Session at Fort Worth in 2011. She is a regular speaker to a wide range of groups in the UK, including a JAS annual conference, and to the Jane Austen Society of Australia plus several of its branches. The topics of her presentations include: Did Marianne Sing Scots Songs?; Regency Servant Life; ‘Treatments’ for Illness 200 years ago; Education in Regency Britain.

Maureen’s other interests include singing, church activities, geneology, baking and tapestry.

  
Tom Kelly is a retired civil servant who studied history at Cambridge University. Post-retirement, he describes himself as a polyphasic polymath. He is an occasional speaker on themes and characters in Jane Austen’s novels, having been persuaded by Cheryl Kinney to try a breakout session for blokes at the JASNA conference in Fort Worth in 2011 on “Dads, Cads and Lads in Sense and Sensibility”. He also gives talks on Scottish history, historic churches, the music and life of Edward Elgar and other composers, hosts quizzes setting his own questions, and writes a commentary – Scotlog – on political issues in Scotland and the UK.
  
Maureen and Tom, plus their lively Jack Russell Terrier, Barney, live in Edinburgh with a bolthole chalet in Braemar, Royal Deeside.

Don't forget to ask them about their associations with the British Royals - interesting tales indeed!
