What do you think of writers using pen names? Do any of you use a pen name? Would you consider using a pen name? I know of a few famous writers that uses pen names. I think the most famous one is Anne Rice, her real name is Howard Allen Frances O'Brien. She also uses A.N. Roquelaure for her Sleeping Beauty Trilogy, erotic BDSM novels set in a fantasy world. In which a fourth book is in the works apparently. Also the fantastic Agatha Christie had a pen name, Mary Westmacott. She wrote a series of romance novels under that name. Of course we have Benjamin Franklin writing letters to the newspaper under the name Mrs. Silence Dogood. If he qualifies that is. That's all I know without the use of Google.
