Exploring the Pen Name
With Guest Blogger and Author Bagheera
(During the month of June, here at Today the Dragon Wins we explore the use of pseudonyms. Don't forget to participate in the discussion in the comment field to enter the contest for a copy of the eBook version of Choices Meant for Gods. Details were posted June 1.)
What's in a Pen Name?
Born in the Year of the Tiger, it wasn't so surprising I developed the feline urge to roam. "He who walks alone" has always been a perfect description of me. Stealth and secrecy, magic and mystery. What more could any cat crave?
Independence. Freedom. My wanderlust took me to many different places over the years, and wherever I went I sooner or later became involved with the local Cub Scout unit. Everywhere, every time, sooner rather than later, the comment was made: "Nobody ever hears you coming."
And so, invariably, I became Bagheera, second in command after Akela.
Is it really surprising that cats have become a central feature in a significant number of stories I have written over the years?
Remember this, human:
Dogs have Masters.
Cats have STAFF.
