So, what is Everybody Hates Rand?


Well, hello! Hail and well met, or something.

I’m Emily Juchau…

Emily has a degree in English from the University of Utah; it’s currently collecting dust in her parents’ basement. She used to lift boxes for a living. Now she answers phones and helps wealthy people plan their vacations. Her favorite things in the world are Diet Coke, men’s jeans, and Sally.

Emily is on her fourth re-read of The Wheel of Time, so cumulatively she has probably spent a decade on this series. #Regrets
