Pseudonymous Books

I've written about my top 10 pseudonymous books for the Guardian - and about my own decision to use an assumed name for my first book, which I have since regretted.
"When I was wrote my first book, A Dog Called Grk, I was working for this very newspaper, writing and editing reviews for the books pages. I didn't want people to get confused about who I was or what I did, so I thought it would be sensible to have two different names, one for books and the other for journalism. I invented a new name for myself: a pen name, a nom de plume, a pseudonym."


  1. I just finished reading Island of Thieves and loved it. Great adventure story!
