Being Alison Hudson

So it’s a day later and the decision’s been made. I’m retiring Alison Edwards. As a nom de plume, she is no more. She has ceased to be. She’s expired and gone to meet her maker.She’s off the twig. She’s a stiff. She’s bereft of life. She rests in peace. She’s curled up her tootsies and shuffled of this mortal coil. She’s run up the curtain and joined the choir invisible. She fucking snuffed it!

Sorry. Couldn’t resist.

So for readers who did not know (and I think I’ve mentioned it on here before), by legal last name is Hudson, and that’s the name I’m writing as now, too, for all the reasons I stated in the last post. It’s just easier this way, at a time when I need things to be a little less complicated all around. So …

HI, I’m Alison Paula Hudson. Pleased to meet you.

I would like to think that Alison Edwards isn’t dead, merely resting. The name may come back in come capacity in the future, for some purpose, somewhere. But for now, she is an ex-Alison.
