I am adopting a pen name for my writing.


I have decided after watching many youtube videos on the subject to adopt a pen name. I am already using Tessa on here and so I am using Tessa and my maiden name of Dean for a pen name. I have a lot to change for this and it will take some time to get it all under control.

I was able to change my youtube name which I wasn’t sure about, but all I needed to do was change my google name. So I will be writing under Tessa Dean from now on.

Here is the video where I make the change:

I don’t know if I will ever publish a book. A lot depends on finances. However I am looking at publishing my stuff on my blogs however I haven’t decided if I will add a new blog just for writing under that pen name since I have a lot of viewers on my 2 current blogs and starting a new one from scratch would be difficult and time consuming.

Tessa – 

Advocate for mental health and invisible illnesses, also a devout Christian

Author – http://www.finallyawriter.com (this blog contains my old work mostly although occasionally I do add something new here), new work is mainly on this blog http://www.tessacandoit.com
