John Sanford Goes to Camp

Or Rather, John Camp went to Sanford. The two Johns are one and the same. One name is his given, the other he uses for marketing reasons.

John’s not alone. Other writers do it too. John writes two types of books, and instead of confusing or disappointing readers who have come to love one kind of book, he simply sells them under different names.

He uses his grandfather’s name for his adult fiction and his real name for children’s books.

What’s in a name? A lot when you’re a bestselling novelist.
