Anna Kathryn Lanier is a pen name, and since I blogged about my daughters, I'll tell ya'll how I arrived at that name.
Tiffany's middle name is Anne and Holly's middle name is Kathryn (Kathryn is also my sister's first name). I thought Anna went better with Kathryn than Anne did, so I made the one little change to it. Lanier was my great-grandmother's maiden name, and I thought it was the better of the family names (somehow Coons just didn't sound very romantic).
So, that's how I arrived at calling myself Anna Kathryn Lanier.
As for my other pen name M. J. Sager....well, that's my real initials and my maiden name.
