To pen name or no to pen name

I really am wrestling with this.
What do I call myself? Do I get a choice?
Is it worth the effort, will it just be a cover or DEEP cover?
The thing is I write in 2 totally different areas and I don’t want to have them mixed up. I mean Bronwen romance writer is different from Bronwen children’s author.
I don’t want to be written off as a children’s author because I write romance novels …. I know it shouldn’t happen but it does people don’t seem to believe you can mix the two.
And if I do take on the pen name should I just have it as a cover or should I really try and seperate the two?

Hmmm questions questions I am going to have to find out what others do and decide from there.

  1. Bronwen, Judy Blume was a children’s author as well as an adult, almost erotic, fiction author and was respected in both areas. I think it’s a personal choice. Maybe use your real name for one area and a variation of your last name for the other if using your real name for both is something that really bothers you.
