Here is her website : http://pbackwriter.blogspot.com/

you couldn't find it becasue that is just a pen name she uses.  She also writes as : Rebecca Kelly, S.L. Viehl,  these last two she used to write as but they are now out of print. Jessica Hall  Gena Hale.

It always makes it confusing to find authors who write as several people but at least she keeps all her names at one place.  Hope you enjoy the site.

Why do writers have an identity crisis every few years and have to change their names???

Sometimes they use different names for different genres.  I know of one author who writes both YA and erotica.  This seems to happen a lot with authors who also write YA or mysteries.  Keeping those fans away from paranormal romance?

Sometimes they change their name when they move to a different publisher.  Whether this is forced, part of the negotiations, or to distance themselves from work that they no longer have legal control of, varies.

I don't know its super annoying thought.  I know this author does it for different genres.  The Rebecca Kelly is christinan fiction then the two Veihl names are science fiction.  with S. L being more general science fiction and Lynn Veihl being more a shoot off of paranormal.  It really doesn't make any sence though why they do it.  I mean look at James patterson he writes at least three different genres and still uses the same name.
