Today I’m thrilled to have Christy Carlyle author of Scandalous Wager with me in the Blue Rose Writing Room. Christy designed my website, so be sure to tootle over there and see what else this amazingly talented woman does!
So, do you use a pen name/pseudo name? If so, why. If not, why did you decide to write under your own name?
I do write under a pen name, more than one, actually. I decided if my writing career went entirely pear-shaped, I would spare my husband’s family any undue shame or embarrassment. As it turns out, they are proud of me, even if romance isn’t their literary cup of tea, but I am still happier and somehow feel liberated when writing under my pen names. J
I understand that completely. My real name is so boring, readers would be snoring before they cracked the book open if I used it.
