Thank you for writing this. I use a pen name for those reasons and a few more…maybe someday I’ll write about it.

Last week, when the OP commented on one of my articles questioning my authenticity based on my usage of a pen name, I had a sneaky feeling she would exploit and exaggerate the experience to make a buck…and she did not disappoint. I recognized her name and remembered her harassing Shannon Ashley about a month ago and then writing a story bashing her. It seems like discrediting and degrading other female writers is just her thing, which is pretty sad.

Your response is perfection ❤️
