The decision to use a pen name did stem from the fact that I wasn't quite sure how I felt about my real name being associated with explicit writing. But then it just seemed a better business decision to have different names for different lines I might write in the future.
So I didn't shock the socks off unsuspecting readers following my sweet romance line...when I got one LOL.
But I must say it was just plain simple fun to invent a persona that suited the side of myself that loves erotic romance and other erotic fiction. When I am Anna Fallon I don't have to worry about saying I love a powerful story with characters that go all the way.
But I certainly no longer hide behind it, I tell everyone who asks I'm a writer of romance and I write erotic romance under the pen name of Anna Fallon.
I like being Anna Fallon, I've grown into it now
