Our authors today have used pseudonyms, or pen names.
1. Our first author has had several pseudonyms to help separate her adult level books from her young adult books, and also from her books for younger children. One of her favorite young adult characters is John Fell, a teen who solves mysteries. One of the mysteries involves changing places with a prep school student. Another involves ventriloquism. Any idea who the author is, or what any of her pseudonyms are?
2. This author made up a biography to go with his pseudonym, which backfired when the the books she supposedly wrote became popular. He had included some made up titles in the biography and people actually began searching for them. He thought the name he chose was an obvious pseudonym: “Sue Denim.” Do you know who this less-than-serious author might be?
Please leave us a comment if you have an idea.
