When I was picking a pseudonym to write under, I did a quick check to see if there was already a well-known author with the name I was planning to use.
There were people with the same name, but none of them appeared to be authors.
I did find something cool: a character named Hyacinth Grey.
Scandal’s Heiress by Amelia Smith.
I haven’t read it yet, but I’m thinking about it.
Have you read it? What did you think? Have you ever met a character who shared your name?
