And if you're the curious type, you might find out a thing or two you didn't know about me. So stop on by!

Do Multiple Genres Equal Multiple Pen Names?

This discussion goes on and on. I’ve seen it for years. And in the way of human beings, now it’s affecting me, so I’m requesting input.
I understand the difference between having a pen name for standard romance versus erotic romance, but I have to wonder, is that line blurring? Everybody knows who J.D. Robb is. And no, La Nora doesn't write erotica, but Eve can be quite the spicy character. J.R. Ward followers know she also writes under Jessica Bird and both names are on her website. Let’s not forget the fantabulous Sylvia Day, aka Livia Dare and S.J. Day.

Granted, I have nowhere near the following that these awesome authors have, for me it’s more a question of getting started on the right foot.
Now that I’ve been writing for a while, I find myself wanting to try my hand at other genres. But do I really need to have a selection of names, one for each?

If so, can I put them all on one web page? If a standard romance reader discovers I write erotica under another name or fantasy, paranormal or whatever, will they be put off?
I know some of my writer friends have more than one pen name. If you had it to do over again, would you still use more than one name?

Ultimately this will be my decision, but terrific people that you are, you’ve never steered me wrong yet. So speak up. Tell me what you think.
