Why did I choose that pen name?

Yes, Sol Vera is a pseudonym, and I have to use it for various reason. I have a day job, I use my real name for other kind of publications, I’m terribly shy…

I wanted so use a short name that shared my nationality (Spanish) and sounded familiar. People who know me have said it reminds them of my personality, so maybe I chose well after all.

I chose Sol because it means “sun”, which is something typically Spanish. A vera can be the bank of a river or somebody’s side (as in she stood by my side), but also half of the Spanish name for spring, “primavera”, which is the season in which I was born.

I can still change it if I find something wrong with it, so let me know if you think it’s a bad name for any reason!
