BOSSY PANTS - An Experiment in Children’s Book Publishing Begins
By Ryan Petty
A Children’s Book Writer Comes Out of His Writerly Closet - But Writes with a Pseudonym - "Sage Merriman"
I’ve been writing children’s picture book manuscripts for the last twenty years and have finally decided to give it the attention it deserves.
This may have been occasioned by receiving the word from our daughter that my wife, Melissa, and I will soon be grandparents.
O frabjous day! Callooh! Calla!
As to the pseudonym, I think it more a persona. I am happy to acknowledge it and the body of work that will be gradually revealed. I think it best though to use a pen name in order to create a brand to help readers distinguish my children’s book efforts from those of my non-fiction and future fiction for adults.
