i thought i'd do a
really short post today about my last name.
i know, weird topic, right?
but the fact is, i get some strange looks when i tell people my pen name. the best is when they repeat it--slow like--to try it out on their tongue.
yeah, it's definitely not a common last name but it has a special meaning for me.
there are a few different meanings according to the baby name sites out there, but the one that kept coming up and the main reason i picked it for my alter-ego is because it means Horse Keeper.
those who know me IRL know i've been involved in the horse industry since i first laid eyes on them as a young'un. obsessed might be a word my parents would use.

when i started looking into pen names, i checked out a couple that i thought i might like to use, but they were taken by authors already. albeit by craft book writers and recipe gurus, but i didn't think they'd appreciate an erotic romance author having the same name so i moved on. plenty of names out there, right?
but i wanted something that had some tie to my real life, so when i started looking into horse-themes, this one popped up.
