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. 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 or Facebook.

Rachel Aaron I'm hoping so. 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…moreI'm hoping so. 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)

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!

I'm still debating whether to put Nice Dragons finish last in my list of favorites...I'll wait to see how I feel about the sequel.

Ok, ok, how do I start. I was freaking bored with this book... XD Yep, that's how I felt at first. Julius, the protagonist, was too nice,..." Read more of this review »

“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
