We have all heard/read about the inequality re women in this business - we are aware writers often use a pseudonym or a nom de plume, so, should women convert to a male name to enhance their opportunity in this business? Is it a hindrance as a writer to use a female name, does it hold one back? Is Chanel Ashley better off as John Kennedy? - are my chances of success enhanced, does it increase my credibility? - I don't know, you tell me, there is a plethora of personnel on this site with enough credentials to make a valued judgement/comment.
