Welcome friends to another discussion of the week! Big smile Many of the authors write under two names like Nora Robberts.. So lets discuss this mysterious "reason" for writing under two names today..LOL

While some authors have a desire for pseudonym (writing all of one's books under an assumed name), some authors write some books under 1 names and some books under another name..For example Norra Robberts/ J.D Robb.. Now there are even news that John Banville has published other books under the name of Benjamin Black.

What do u think is the reason for this? Isnt this wierd dat they want to write some books under 1 names and other books under another name? Is it bec they write some books of one genre under 1 name and other books of other genre under some other name? Why cant they write books of 2 genres under 1 name only just make them different series?

@Saira: Seriously im running out of topics for Book talk and u call dis intresting.LOL

Well i agree.. Usually it is bec they right on different genres and maybe as u said, dey want to keep it different and dont want dem to associate it wid thier earlier works..

However even if for example Norra Robberts writes mystery/thriller and romance under one name, im sure people would regard id as different work as the genres are completly different..Also even through she writes them under different names, people knoe dey are by her.. Embarrassed

Because the books are different genre under the different names...JD Robb is a series based on a cop while under Nora Roberts she writes acutally, historical, paranormal and regular stories.

I think quiet a few writers who churn out kind of series of book do that, its to attract different types of readers.
