I use a pseudonym. I’ve never made a secret of it. I flipped through a baby names book and picked something that sounded fancy.
I DID A TERRIBLE JOB OF PICKING A PSEUDONYM.
There. I said it. Damn you, baby book. Damn you, worldwide success that makes it impossible for me to now change my pseudonym. Okay, I take back that last statement. I’ll keep my success and deal with the headache of my pseudonym quite happily.
