In addition to my paranormal YA (young adult) fiction, I also write edgy / contemporary YA under the name, Judith Tewes.
What’s with all the pen names, you ask?
Well – it comes down to branding for specific genres. I have different pen names for the various genres in which I write. Helps with marketing, with emails, and generally with keeping my projects compartmentalized and under control.
It’s not a big secret and I heavily cross-promote between names. Readers have the option of following me under both aliases, or choosing the one they most identify with…it’s a win / win for everyone.
So if you’re into stories set in “the real world” without beasties of the night – but with characters battling “monsters” all the same – Judith Tewes might be of interest.
