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. Confused yet? I know I am!

I was born in Atlanta, but I currently live a lovely, nerdy, bookish life in Athens, GA with my lightspeed son, perpetually understanding husband, and fat dog.

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)

NIGHT SHIFT DRAGONS comes out today in ebook and audio!

They say family always sticks together, but when you’re your dad’s only lifeline and the whole world—humans, dragons, and gods—wants you dead, “family bonding” takes on a whole new meaning.
My name is Opal Yong-ae, and I’m in way over my head. I thought getting rid of my dad’s bad luck curse would put things back to normal. Instead, I’m stuck playing caretaker to the Great Dragon of Korea

No Good Dragon Goes Unpunished by Rachel Aaron
I was originally planning for five, but now it's looking more like four. There's definitely going to be one book after this, and that one should be the grand finale!

Thank you for reading!!

“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

“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

“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
