Marigold Deidre Dicer is my pen name.
Margiold, for all the beautiful things I admire.
Deidre, for the old soul that resides within me.
Dicer, for the darker themes I love to explore.
If you haven’t heard of it, look up a video game called Lollipop Chainsaw by Suda 51. Replace the main character’s personality with the spirit of, I don’t know, Miss Marple or some other awesome old fuddy-duddy and you would basically have my ideal scenario. Actually, maybe I should write a letter to Suda and suggest the idea for a sequel…
My real name is very ordinary. Chances are, you might know someone with the exact same name as me. So do I. There are far too many of us. Even in the suburb I live in, I know another person with my name. We frequent the same library.
So you can probably see why I decided to use a pen name.
