Here is my quandary....do I use a pen name?
As you may well have noticed in my about me section, Taryn Raye was not the name I was given at birth. Nor is it my married name. I'm not trying to hide my real name by any means, but I don't think my given or married names are very eye-catching so to speak.
What are you're opinions about pen names? Do you use one, if you are a writer? What are your reasons for doing so? Does it pose a problem or conflict of personality to be known by two names?
I would really love some imput on the pros and cons of using a pen before I start submitting with one. Any advice would be wonderful and appreciated.
