Like the title says, I'll answer to just about anything - Bron, Chris, Mama, Mother-Lady, Mrs. Killian's Mommy, Hon, Sisty - and from certain people, Granola, Pickle and Boog.
But other than the name, there's not a lot of distinction between the me that takes the kids to school, rides their asses to make sure they do their homework, hugs them goodnight and snuggles up with the hubby and the me that writes erotic romance novels and plots involving witches, werebears and faeries. There's really no difference between my public and private personas - pretty much what you see is what you get. Although, I will cop to wearing makeup more often at conferences than I ever do at home.
You might wonder why I took a pen name in the first place. There are a couple of reasons. The first is because of my kids. When they were younger, I spent a lot of time volunteering in the classrooms of their fairly conservative school. I knew there were certain parents that would have a fit if an erotic romance writer was interacting with their children. Sad but true. Besides, school can be difficult enough without adding "Your mom writes porn!" added to the catalog of insults kids hurl at each other.
The second reason is that I've always loved the name Bronwyn, and since I didn't get to use it for a daughter, I decided to take it for myself.
That's pretty much it - the same me answering to just about anything.
