Trivia: Pen Names

Posted by at 6:50 am in Trivia | Permalink

Questionmark_130The Last of the Really Great Whangdoodles author, “Julie Edwards,” is actually famed actress Julie Andrews. What I didn’t know is that Julie Andrews is married to director Blake Edwards — hence her choice of pen name.

I’ve got some more pen name trivia for you. Match the pen name to the real author name, below. (HINT: For one of these pairs, you’ll definitely be more familiar with the real name than the pen name!)

Pen Names
1. Lewis Carroll
2. Dr. Seuss
3. A. M. Barnard
4. Lemony Snicket
5. Mark Twain

Real Author Names
A. Daniel Handler
B. Samuel Clemens
C. Theodor Geisel
D. Louisa May Alcott
E. Charles Lutwidge Dodgson

Leave a comment with your guesses, and I’ll reveal the answers next week!
