Just noticed in the books to wish list that Joss Ware is also Colleen Gleason / Colette Gale.

Thought we should have some place to list pen names.  Some authors write in different styles under different names.  Some change when the publisher changes.

Kim Harrison,  Dawn Cook

Jayne Castle, Jayne Krentz, Amanda Quick

S. L. Viehl, Lynn Viehl

Juliet Blackwell, half of Hailey Lind

Tate Hallaway, Lyda Morehouse

Shelly Laurenston, G A Aiken

I know there are more.

as far as i can tell, best bet is if someone recognizes the picture..  i did some searching around, and the best i could find was a blog Q&A where she explains why she doesn't say:

BBB: Rumor has it that you write under several pen names, is that true?  What have you published under those other names?

SJ: I’ve published fairly graphic adult romance and slightly less graphic historical urban fantasy romance under two other pen names, neither of which pens things appropriate for the Young Adult audience. That’s why I keep my YA separate from my other writing. Not to be condescending to my teen readers, but I did a lot of soul searching and I decided this was the best way to handle my very different work. My fourteen year old would be freaked to read my other stuff right now. In five years, she might feel differently, but for now the other stuff isn’t appropriate for her. That’s my decision as a mom and as a writer.

Based just on photos, can Anna J. Evans also be SJ?  And also Annaliese Evans.  Which would explain why she does not want teens to connect the two names.    So I'm not spelling out SJ's name here.  Not after seeing that some of Anna's books are from EC.


Looked at photos on her agent's website.
