Roxanne Longstreet Conrad is a worrisome confabulation of persons, including Rachel Caine, Julie Fortune, Roxanne Longstreet, Roxanne Conrad and Ian Hammell (she has no idea what Ian writes, actually, and that’s probably for the best). She has Web sites, the most prominent of which is www.rachelcaine.com. Until recently, she was a recovering Harry Potter addict. Sadly, the recovery process ground to a halt after she was discovered gazing dreamily at her lenticular Sirius Black wanted poster and her autographed photo of Snape while holding her Hermione Granger wand and wearing her Time Turner pendant. She also was honored by being appointed Head of Slytherin House at The Witching Hour, a 2005 Harry Potter symposium in Salem, Mass. Blackmail photos abound.
