    1. It’s funny how we choose our names, isn’t it? When I was a little girl I went through a phase where I would only answer to Jill. And when I wrote my first book (aged around ten! It wasn’t up to much!) I drew the cover and added the title: The Elizabethan House, and the author name: Sharon Elizabeth Baxter. Where did that come from? I have absolutely no idea!

  1. Fascinating post, Sharon. I don’t exactly write under a pseudonym. Hywela and Lyn are both my real Christian names. There is nothing wrong with my surname, but it’s a bit ordinary and when I was submitting my first novel, I thought it would be a good idea to combine my first and second names as my pen-name. Although Hywela is my legal first name, I have always been called just ‘Lyn’ ever since I was a baby, so I thought it would be nice to give ‘Hywela’ a bit of credit. I was born and lived most of my life in Wales, so it’s nice to have a link to my Welsh heritage and upbringing.

Would love to hear your thoughts!
