I came across an article which I found particularly interesting a couple of days ago which in turn sparked my curiosity.
The article was about author Natasha Walker, who wrote the erotic series “The Secret Lives of Emma”.
You can find my reviews for the first two books in the series here:
What I found particularly curious is that "she", being Natasha Walker, is actually a HE!
He to be exact is John Purcell. Who is John Purcell? Well he just happens to be the chief book buyer and head of marketing at Booktopia! For those international book lovers out there, Booktopia is an online bookstore here in Australia.
This got me thinking, are there other male authors out there, hiding behind a female guise?
Does the fact of being female or writing under a female name guarantee you will sell more than if you were writing under a male name?
