And yes I do know a few authors on that list.
Being a male author in a genre where male authors are a rarity and occasionally viewed with some suspicion I've often toyed with the idea of creating a female nomme de-plume as I know some men in my situation do. I think I've finally hit upon one that's crazy enough that I actually like it: TESS LACOIL
And if anyone asks why I write under that name I'll say something corny like "because my erotica is really INVENTIVE and it creates a lot of SPARKS!"
And all will go well until a writer named Edison comes along and plagarizes me. And then I will cry.
