I have never heard of her nor her novels. These are novels not government secrets being published. He really had no business outing her, she and her publishers chose not to use her real name. That’s hers and their business not his.
His reasoning are totally lame. Arguing “she lied” before as artice writer points out they are emotional not factual lies. Also has no bearing or reason to out her.
There are millions of people who post online with fake names. Its their right and should be respected. I assume there are male writers writing romance novels for Harlequin. I assume to many female romance writers for Harlequin use fake names. Many pulp writers use fake names, Don Pendleton was a fake name as an example. They all have the right to privacy and privacy is the right to use a fake name.
