Okay….yes, Cecilia Simon is a nom de plume.   I like writing erotica.  Call it smut if you like, but I certainly can’t do it under my real name, now can I?   Someday, perhaps.  I have the odd day dream of being like Anne Rice.  My “regular books” will be famous and my publisher will be forcing me to out this pen name so that the world will also by the books I write under it.

The more probable outcome is that I’ll get erotic novels published and no one will ever know who I really am.  And, frankly, I’m fine with my kids being in the dark about what it is mommy writes all day.    Let Cecilia Simon be a real enough person and just go with it.
