Hi Marc.

Publishing, Agents, and Hollywood change people's names all the time. HW is the worst offender.

I know why they do it, and it has to do with human memory. They want the name easy to remember. I think they call this 'branding'.

Using a pen name causes some problems in getting paid but they can be overcome.

I think there's another Arsons writing spy novels. But sometimes my memory plays tricks on me.

Have a nice writing day.
