Hello, my name is Rachel Aaron, and I write the Heartstriker books, a new Urban Fantasy series about misfit dragons, starting with Nice Dragons Finish Last. I also wrote The Legend of Eli Monpress fantasy series for Orbit Books about a wizard thief and the poor bastards who have to try and stop him. PLUS I'm also the author of the new, rolicking fun Science Fiction romance Fortune's Pawn under the name Rachel Bach.

I was born in Atlanta, but I currently live a lovely, nerdy, bookish life in Denver, CO with my lightspeed son, perpetually understanding husband, and far too many plants. Besides my own books, the internet knows me best for writing very fast. The best way to get to know me is probably to read my blog or follow me on Twitter.

There's no solid timelines in writing, though. if I get stuck on a book, there could be a gap since I'm not going to release a book until I'm sure it's up to snuff.

Barring disaster, I'm hoping to do three books per year. For example, Heartstrikers #2, One Good Dragon Deserves Another, should be out in November.

Thank you for reading!!!(less)

"snappy and fresh.

The new installment from Rachel Aaron is new and complex. You like the good guys, and sympathize with the not-so-good guys. Totally worth a read."

"1876, Montana. But not exactly OUR Montana.

There's a mining rush going on, but not for gold. They're all mad for the newly-discovered "crystal," and the frontier town of Medicine Rocks sits atop a cavern system full of it.

Quotes by Rachel Aaron  (?)
Quotes are added by the Goodreads community and are not verified by Goodreads. (Learn more)

“Why are mortals always so eager to declare things impossible, anyway? It’s not like things do or don’t exist just because you say so.”
Rachel Aaron, Nice Dragons Finish Last

“First rule of thievery,' Eli said, grinning, 'only run if you're not coming back.' (...) 'First rule of thievery, never use the same entrance twice.' Miranda rolled her eyes. 'How many 'first rules' of thievery do you have?' 'When one mistake can mean your head on a pike, every rule's a first rule,' Eli said cheerfully.”
Rachel Aaron, The Spirit Thief

“How did you get in here?' (...) 'How I got here isn't important, because I could do it twenty times again, each time a different way.”
Rachel Aaron, The Spirit Thief

October BOM. We are doing this one a little different. We've picked some favorites from the MODs that haven't been read or haven't been read in the last few years. They all have good creatures to give this a nice Halloweenie theme. Which would you like to read in October as a BOM?
