A beginning is a very delicate time…

That’s the obligatory first blog post title of any nerdly being worth the name, is it not? Well then. I had to fly my colours right up front, so you know who you’re dealing with.

Of course, now you’re going to picture me as the disembodied head of Princess Irulan. I can think of worse things, so that’s okay.

My name is Rachel Hartman. I’m a writer and a smart-ass. I’m Canadian and American and generally full of beans. This is a test-post, obviously, so you shouldn’t take anything here too much to heart.

Welcome, all.
