Meet your “Harry Potter Fan Blogger” – Hanako M. Ricks Congratulations to Hanako M. Ricks, who is going to be our “Harry Potter Fan Blogger.” She will be sending us the scoops 24/7, so be sure to keep checking back so you don’t miss a thing!

Before she starts posting on Monday, take some time to get to know her:

Hanako is a lifelong Atlanta resident who has been active in the Harry Potter online fandom for the past five years. Known around the fandom as “hmrpotter”, she began reading the series out of boredom and curiosity and within a week, found not only a new obsession but a network of friends and “fandom family” that has literally spanned the world. When not writing about Harry Potter she manages her personal blog, “Confessions of a Grown-Up Fangirl”, where she talks about her other loves for books, television, movies and conventions relating to sci-fi/fantasy, vampires and a certain set of “Supernatural” demon-hunting brothers. She is also an occasional guest on the Sci-Fi Party Line Podcast, a network of fans who talk about everything relating to science fiction/fantasy.

When not in grown-up fangirl mode, Hanako is a full-time administrative assistant, journalism student, wife and mother to three kids, who are being raised to be proud geeks as well.

    I am a real big fan, but was so disappointed when the last one came out, I went hunting around for other things that were just as epic. I found this one thing called Exit: Wound”. it’s a magical tale but a bit the characters are a little older and more mature than in the Potter Books, like one level up. This budding young authority is being tipped for good things. If you liked Potter, you’ll love this.
