Today I am thrilled to repost this fabulous article on me from Reuters, courtesy of the lovely Julie Mollins. Please RT, post on your FB wall, and share far and wide! Cheers!
(Reuters) – It’s no secret that good storytelling involves characters who are in opposition to generate controversy — but author Christine Rose has taken this a step further by developing an opposing second identity as O.M. Grey.
Grey is author of the sexy, paranormal “Avalon Revisited” steampunk novel about English King Henry VIII’s brother Arthur, who is depicted as a vampire. Grey also has a steampunk persona in real life, with a multimedia blog that offers candid advice on romantic and erotic troubles.
The entrepreneurial Rose, however, is the author of “Publishing and Marketing Realities for the Emerging Author,” and co-author with husband Ethan Rose of the “Rowan of the Wood” young adult fantasy series, which won the 2009 Indie Excellence Award for Young Adult Fiction.
“I’ve learned what works and what doesn’t,” Grey said.
“I’m able to compare that with my other persona, Christine Rose. As Christine Rose I take a more traditional route. I’ve seen a lot more success with Olivia (O.M. Grey).”

I love the idea a multiple identities. I have a few a them myself. — Bob Collins
Aren’t they fun?
I’ve got one alter ego who contrasts strongly with my own personality. Not always easy to stay in character at times.
My alter ego is pretty much me in a bouncy red wig. Perhaps a little more flirty and free, and a little more demure at the same time. Olivia is a lot of fun, actually. http://omgrey.wordpress.com
Love the idea of an alter-ego. Perfect for breaking your own boundaries! 🙂
It is indeed!!
