Even though their real identity might be, it is no secret that over the years many writers across many genres have made use of a “pen name” now sometimes called a “pseudo name” in their work.
One of the most famous is Mark Twain whose real name was Samuel Clemens. More recently, many authors have written under several names for any number of purposes.
As a writer, I’ve even written under one.
While the reasons people do it varies, the notion of writing in such a way is very popular. For the writers out there reading this post, have you ever written under a pen name or considered doing so? Comments and opinions welcome.
