I am not sure 'learned how to tell great big lies at an early age' is quite the right thing. I am sure I can think of something!
As for a pen name I have thought of many - choose your favorite:
Using my own name or some deritive thereof:
Louise Michaels (this is my middle name + my husband's)
Or an anagram:
Lace Riddek (Eddie Clark)
Deuce Roadkill (Eddie Lou Clark) Hmmm... not quite right.
Anybody got suggestions?
