Hello, my name is Rachel Aaron, and I write The Legend of Eli Monpress fantasy series for Orbit Books! I'm also the author of the new, rolicking fun Paradox Science Fiction trilogy under the name Rachel Bach. Confused yet? I know I am!
I was born and raised in Atlanta, but I currently live a lovely, nerdy, bookish life in Athens, GA with my faster-than-the-speed-of-light son, perpetually understanding husband, and fat dog. I write full time, all the time, but when my husband can drag me away from my own books, I love reading fantasy (urban and traditional), Romance (paranormal and Regency), and Science Fiction (all kinds). I also enjoy video games, Minecraft, anime, manga, hanging out at conventions, and very overdone, epic things.
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. But if you don't feel like being all social media-y, here are a few of the interviews I've done:
Interview swap with Elizabeth Moon!!
Interview on Lytherus
Most recent interview with Fantasy Book Critic
Official interview with Orbit Books
Post Spirit's End Interview with Stellar Four (Warning, spoilers!)
Podcast interview for The First Million Words (almost entirely writing craft related)
Interview all about my Eli Monpress series with Mel's Random Reviews
Interview with The Write Thing
Interview with Civilian Reader
Podcast with Dead Robots' Society (mostly talking about writing and word counts)
Videochat with myself and fellow authors John Hartness, and Kalayna Price (short and entirely about writing)
If you still want to know more after all that, know that I love, love, love meeting and hearing from readers and writers, so if you have anything you'd like to say, don't hesitate to contact me!
Wishing you the largest bounty you can get!
