In 2013, I published two short story collections under my maiden name, Ellie Garratt. Should I continue to publish in that name or do I switch to Stephenson? If I switch to my married name, do I use Ellie Stephenson, E Stephenson, or even Eleanor Stephenson? Which would be better when considering I write mainly science fiction and horror? Do I vary my name depending on genre? Should I re-publish my two short collections under my new name? If I decide to keep publishing as Ellie Garratt, will that offend my husband?
My head is spinning with possibilities.
What do you think? I'm not in any rush to make a decision, but it is nagging away at me. I'd appreciate any thoughts and idea you might have.
I couldn't end this post without sharing some wedding photographs. We were married on the Isle of Skye, Scotland. It was a beautiful day, and every bit the fairy tale I thought it would be. We could not be happier, and are both looking forward to what the future brings.
