Homme de Plume

After previous comments that I’ve made about pen names, and how some genres of books are expected to be written by men or women, I found this article:


A female writer Catherine Nichols experimented with sending her query letter out as a man. She was shocked at the response she received and had the wisdom to extract helpful hints from the comments that got in the critiques.

I Googled her, and found that there’s already a well-known author with the same name, so she might be well advised to find another pen name apart from George Leyer!
