"Pen names, a stage name, an alias, all conceal the identitiy of what is real.
Hidden behind another name, preconceived notions and misconceptions are laid aside.
Finally, freedom is obtained to be anything because nothing is expected. One
becomes new, untainted by the past. For the past has faded away and only freshness
remains. Samuel Langhorne Clemons is my hero for he understands my position. I
like the brilliancy of writing to write rather than writing to be someone or
something in someone's mind. For when one reads and knows not the person behind the
words, it is only the words that are heard. And words want to speak without being
