Carma Spence comes to this role with panache and a child-like exuberance. “Christopher is my best friend!” she says. “And I can’t wait to be working opposite him in my new role as Mrs. Gildemeister.”

A long time Toastmaster, she is an author, speaker and coach, as well as writer of both fiction and nonfiction. She has two published cookbooks and two published business books. She is currently working on six more books.

Carma has been a science fiction fan since she was at least five years old, when her father introduced her to Star Trek. “I love that Christopher and I geek in similar ways,” she says. In her spare time, Carma collects dragons and enjoys expressing her creativity in the kitchen.

Loves bad B sci-fi movies, collects cows for the kitchen only (the dragons get the rest of the house) and was a belly dancer for three years.


Question: If a movie were made of your life, what actor (past or present) would you want to play you, and why?

Answer: Kathleen Turner. I love how grounded, sultry and sexy she is. Second runner up: Ann Miller! She’s my Dance Goddess and I love how sweet and saucy she is.
