Romance Authors With Pseudonyms


Romance Pen Names (aka Noms de Plume, Aliases, and Author Pseudonyms)

How many romance authors use their real names to write books? Certainly not all of them!

The use of pseudonyms exists in all fields of writing. Author and raconteur Mark Twain was born Samuel “Longhorn” Clemens. George Eliot was a woman named Mary Ann Evans. Even J.K. Rowling shortened her real name, Joanne Kathleen, to publish her Harry Potter blockbusters.

In the romance genre, an author might use a pen-name for various reasons. Perhaps their real name lacks a certain je ne sais quoi.

Some romance writers produce fiction in multiple genres, so they use different names. There are male novelists who want to appeal to the majority female audience. Or they could be a married couple or duo who need a catchy nom-de-plume.

What’s in a name? That which we call a rose
By any other name would smell as sweet…


Romance Author Pseudonym List

Below is a brief list of writers and their pen names. Thousands of authors use aliases; therefore, this is a short compilation. Here we included only those novelists we have reviewed, highlighted, or soon will review.

With each romance author’s pseudonym, we provide a book or link to a book review. We will add more names to the master list as we come upon them.
