What's In A Name

August 1, 2013

pennamesAfter J.K. Rowling admitted she wrote The Cuckoo’s Calling, the NYT asked some other authors to choose a pen name and a genre they would write.  One of my favorite’s is Carl Hiaasen who said his pen name would be Rick O’Morits and his genre fantasy: “I envision a series of vampire-romance novels set at an assisted-living facility in post-apocalyptic Boca Raton.” Other writers include Anne Lamott (her pen name – Dr. Morris Fishback), Rebecca Skloot (who would write “a story of a dog who wrote a best-selling book about animal intelligence”), and Stacy Schiff.  For all the authors, pen names, and genres read the entire article here. (The best comment is from the editor: “This informal survey was conducted before any of them had a chance to consider “Carlos Danger” as an option.”)



Today a reader, tomorrow a leader.
