J. Reese Bradley

Good morning!

I don’t think I will ever learn to spell pseudonym. Thank God for spell check and Grammarly.

I went back and forth on whether or not to write my novels under a pseudonym, and finally decided that I would. The reason is that when I read a novel and know the personality of the author, they become the narrator in my mind. I don’t want the reader to see or hear me in Brumbletide and the Daughter of Eve. I am lucky to have only a tiny audience (whom I love dearly) here on The Keen Peach so that, if I have the pleasure of your readership, you all will be the only ones imagining me as the narrator. Another reason that I thought it best to go with a pseudonym is that as much as I want to morph this blog into an author website, novels are a different world than blogs and need their own platform.

This is all strange to navigate but fun nonetheless!

Have you ever used a pseudonym?

Let’s fantasize. If you were an author, what would your pseudonym be?

Blessings to you,
Angela (J. Reese Bradley)

  1. I decided not to use one. I’m working on some fiction as well, but if I write it the right way I don’t think anyone will read the book “in my voice” so to speak. Neil Gaiman writes as Neil Gaiman, Francine Rivers as Francine Rivers, and so on. Eventually, most authors reveal who they really are (ex. Robert Galbraith is J.K. Rowling) so it’s not a secret for long, in my opinion. I guess I want to be myself and not have to pretend to be someone else – yet, that might be a little fun to try to so maybe I should rethink everything I just said. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    1. That totally makes sense! I think itโ€™s also for me too. Separating the two in my own mind. And yes, it is fun to think of names! Lol! What kind of fiction do you write? Are you close to being done?

      1. Just light, clean and I guess Christian fiction, but not strictly Christian. I am nowhere near done with either of the “books” I’ve started and I’m not really sure where I am going with them, though I’m working on drafting outlines as I go. I have one that is Biblical fiction (it’s on my blog) and the others are faith-based, I guess you would say, but not Biblical fiction. I agree with the idea of separating the two. Hmmm….maybe I’ll rethink the different names ๐Ÿ˜‰
