For the sake of not wanting to come across as being deceitful, I thought I should mention that my birth name is not Murees Dupé. It is my pen name that I promised my family I would use so that my writing ambitions were not associated with their good name at all. My family didn't want to be embarrassed when after trying my best to pursue a writing career, it turns out I have absolutely no writing talent what so ever.
So, I am sorry if it may come across as deceitful, but if I want to write it has to be anonymously. Though funny enough, my pen name is really close to my real name. Ha! Ha!
