The Pressure of a Name
What, you want me to name someone?
You want like a name?
Oh, God, the pressure of a name...
- Kit in Pretty Woman (1990)
Also known as Mrs. Montgomery.
Or Coach Monty's wife.
And Cannon and Maci's mom.
Our players call me Momma Monty.
So, of course, when I decided to try writing romance novels, I had to have a pen name 🥰
Author Virginia'dele Smith
Like tattoos, I believe pen names are forever and should represent something special. My nom de plume — like my one tattoo — is incredibly meaningful! I even wrote a short memoir for her/me/it.
If you've not read Book 0: My Manifesto, just click on the image below to access the digital ebook on me. It's a short read and a fun look behind the curtain of my writing career. I hope you enjoy it!
My many names are like treasured hats — I am blessed to wear them, each and every one ❤️
With love and hugs,
