I feel its a personal decision. You may consider getting a pen name for professional and personal reasons i.e. if your a lawyer or teacher, because people often sue, and this includes friends and family. Indie writers don’t need pen names.
Writers who need to keep their true identity from being disclosed need to hire a lawyer to draw up documents, so that they can approach traditional publishers. The lawyer should not reveal this information.
Make sure you Google the name you want to use to make sure that no one else has it. It also wouldn’t hurt to look on Amazon.
I would like to hear from you….
Do you feel the need to use a pen name? How do you feel about pen names?
