You know I write under two accounts for this very reason. Chloe isn’t my first name either, but it is a nickname most everyone who knows me is aware of so it’s not really much of a stretch. Which is why when I decided to open up even more, I created a true ‘alter ego’

It’s still me, I’m just freer to be me.
