LOL, I used a fiction-focused pen name for editorial work, because my legal name is indexed by google alongside my blog, and I didn't want traffic to cross. Eventually, Google discovered that Alin Walker = Tina Alberino, so I gave up and added my name to my bio on the site, but before that, it would freak me the fuck out if someone put my legal name on a cover letter.
