Welcome to Post #1 of "Just Like the Nut"!
I am a children's writer working on a mystery series. If (when!) a publishing house decides to buy my book(s), I am planning to publish under a pen name ... my maiden name, to be specific.
Until I married seven years ago, whenever I told someone my last name, they'd give me a quizzical look.
"Acorn?" they'd ask.
"Yes," I'd reply. "Just like the nut."
