                                                                        Pen Names:  


A pen name is a pseudonym adopted by an author. It is used to make the author’s name more distinctive, to disguise his or her gender, to distance an author from some or all of his or her works or for any of a number of reasons related to the marketing or the aesthetic presentation of the work. The author’s name may be known only to the publisher, or may come to be common knowledge.  See if you can match the real names with the pen names!
