I'll be the first to admit that it's been a pretty tough few months for me. Marc Nobbs is, obviously, an alias—a creation of my imagination that I use to shield my family (and, indeed, myself) from those who would take issue with the kind of fiction I write. It's quite sad that I have to say that to be honest, but in the world we live in now, one really has no choice. Just as female authors throughout history have published using their initials rather than first names (such as J.K. Rowling) to hide the fact they were women, so many, if not most, authors who are part of the erotic fiction explosion that e-readers have enabled hide behind an alias. Hell, even the most famous of all those authors doesn't use her real name on her books (No prizes for guessing who I'm referring to I'm afraid. Sorry).
