* C. L. (Catherine Lucille) Moore, co-author and wife of Creator/HenryKuttner. Significant number of works billed as Kuttner's were actually written by Moore, because they noticed stories sold better under his (pen)name(s).

*** In Moore's case, though, the use of initials was not to conceal her identity from editors or readers, but from her boss at the bank she worked at. She began to write during the Great Depression. Jobs were scarce, and she believed that if the boss knew she had another source of income, she'd be canned.

* {{Zigzagged}} with Creator/MichaelGrant, Creator/KAApplegate's husband. He co-wrote several of the ''Literature/{{Animorphs}}'', ''{{Remnants}}'' and ''Literature/{{Everworld}}'' books under his wife's (pen)name before starting the ''Literature/{{Gone}}'' series uner his own name. Which means ''he'' was writing books under ''her'' MoustacheDePlume.

* In ''ComicBook/IronMan Noir'', Pepper Potts works as a pulp magazine writer under the pen name "Frank Finlay". When she applies for the position of Tony Stark's personal chronicler, describing the events of his exploits to be published in ''{{Marvel}}s: A Magazine of Men's Adventure'', she assures him it's a very common practice; Norman Brundage is her roommate Julie. Stark and his friend James Rhodes later share a chuckle over the fact that apparently some of his favorite writers wear skirts. At the end of the last issue, however, we see that her stories are now published under her real name - no doubt at Stark's insistence. (The names are chosen to honor two famous pulp-era artists, Virgil Finlay and Margaret Brundage.)

* Tara Samms is an odd example; it's a pseudonym used by Stephen Cole for some of his ''Franchise/DoctorWho'' work, but ''Doctor Who'' spin-off fiction is a male-to-gender-neutral market, so the gender of the pseudonym isn't particularly relevant. It does, however, indicate the work is going to be more "psychological" than works under Cole's own name.

* [[Creator/DCSimpson D. C. (Dana Claire) Simpson]], creator of ''Webcomic/OzyAndMillie''. Some justification for this as Simpson is transsexual and initially self-published under her birth name of David Craig Simpson.
