It’s a sign!

I shared the story of my nom de plume (Andrea Hunter) with a friend today and she thought I should blog it…so here goes.
I chose my pen name because the first name is a variation of my real first name and the last name is associated with the goddess of the Moon, Diana the Huntress. After I chose this name (some 20+ years ago) and my first poem was published, I was at a Speedway on July 4th waiting for the fireworks show. Behind me a woman called out “Andrea” and I swung around to respond. I quickly realized the woman was calling to another woman standing next to me. However, this little experience immediately told me that the name was, indeed, right for me. So, when I write I am Andrea Hunter.
