Default Pseudonyms for Jody Lyn Nye? (Nope)

A modicum of research turns up that Jody Lynn Nye also writes as "Lynn Abbey". And, presumably with Robert Asprin on some joint ventures, as "Robert Lynn Asprin".

So there's another couple of names to add to the search lists.

Nice finds, P'ter.

I think this deserves it's own Thread in the appropriate forum!

Wow, I've never heard this! Share your research - how did you stumble on to this?

*goes off to do so net research of her own*

Okay, I'm starting to doubt this info. From what I can glean Robert Asprin's full name is Robert Lynn Asprin, so this is not a combo name.

He has been married twice, the second marriage to Lynn Abbey. They wrote together for a while, and were divorced in 1993. It seems unlikely that Lynn Abbey and JLNye are the same person and that she continued writing with Asprin after a divorce only with a name change to Jody. Jody is also married to Bill Faucett, though I don't know a date on that which would clear this up completely

Yup, I dispute your info Peter. Lynn Abbey seems to be a fully fledged author in her own right. If she's the same person, they she's gone to a lot of trouble to appear to create two separate identies, complete with their own authorial websites. Hard to do for two con-going authors...

JLNye

Lynn Abbey

I finally found a pictures of Lynn Abbey in a few places. She's definitely not Jody unless the pics were planted fakes (seems unlikely on a high school alumni page).

I bow to your superior research. All four were listed together on e-bay and the overlap of names seemed to suggest a few 'noms de plume'.

I have Phule's company and Phule's Paradise. I have not read them. They are actually in good condition for who they used to belong to. (paperbacks don't stand a chance around this woman) Also I have A stranger in a strange land by Heinlein... I don't usually read scifi comedy unless it says DONT PANIC on the cover lol.

Becky mentioned the Phules series above, which is by Asprin, thus tangentially related. What fun is a topic that doesn't wander OT now and then?
