A rose by any other name…

roseI have been writing for a number of years now. Nothing too sexy–marketing copy, blog posts (personal and professional), articles and columns, the occasional anecdote or blurb in a magazine. In some instances, such as writing for the local paper, I had to use my legal name even though by then I had decided to separate the personal from the professional using a variation of my given name.

When I began writing fiction, I thought I would use my original variation–L. Catharine Tayler–but many of my non-fiction credentials are under that name. Also, I want something shorter and easier to remember when my romances are eventually published. (And they will be published…I don’t give up easily!) I needed a new pen name.

Thus… Cate Tayler was born.

I haven’t been keeping up on blogging lately (as any following this blog can attest), as I have to put the business of writing first. Which means polishing manuscripts, writing synopses, submitting to agents and publishers, starting new manuscripts, etc. So, although I may still update this blog occasionally, I’m moving over to www.CateTayler.com as my primary. I’d love it if you’d join me.

You can still find me on Twitter (I haven’t changed my handle there just yet), my new FB page, Pinterest, and Tumblr. Though, to be honest, my Tumblr feed is mostly reblogs of writing tips and quotes, and anything related to Haven and Arrow (I’m just a little obsessed). Consider yourself warned.

Hope to see you on the other side!
