I've never written on the forums before, because: a) I have a hard time with new situations, even among other Christians and friends, and b) I had a hard time getting my new login to work here!
My question has to do with whether or not we can use a pen name to write our Page Turner non-fiction books. My idea is very personal, and has to do with my relationship with my sister over the years. I don't want to hurt anyone, and she is still alive. It is something which, if written, may help many people.
If using a pen name isn't possible, is it okay to change the names of the people in the book and then put a note at the beginning of the book saying the names have been changed to protect those still living or something to that effect?
The guidelines do not mention any of this
, and so I'm turning to y'all for help. What do you think?
