I’ve been getting asked this question frequently from my friends. The answer is pretty simple.
For the last eight years, I have been a digital scrapbook kit designer. My real name is very “internet” associated with that business. If you google my name; stores, galleries, other people’s blogs using my products, features…etc…all of those will pop up. I need to create a new web presence.
My pen name isn’t some crazy alter ego! I mean, man, I wish it was…that would be rad. But it’s just a simple play on my name. It’s my first initial, my middle name and my maiden name. I like the way it looks and sounds too.
So all you authors who have pen names. What’s your story? Why did you choose it? Or why did you choose NOT to use one? Inquiring minds want to know.
