    Some ideas on the fly:

    Frank Victorenstein. (short, Frank Vicstein).
    Sean B. Ryot.
    Han Ted Hauss.
    Stephen King (this won't catch)

    That's pretty cool, sadly the publisher only accepts pen names with real names.

    Male or female?

    Any cultural or ethnic hopes?

    What kind of connotations you'd like to have?

    Alfred Stark?

    Wyatt B. Wilder?

    Joanna B. Goode?

    Windy Wren?

    If you're going for Gothic horror, something like H. L. Ravenscroft might be just the ticket.
