Buddy for David, the novel, was published January 1, 2014. The screenplay I have written is also entitled Buddy for David, by Carol Ann Ritchey, my new pen name.
Carol Ann Hoel was my married name when my novel was copyrighted in year 2009. The book was published January 1, 2014. I married Steve mid-year 2013. My husband whose last name was Hoel had passed away in year 2012, but I retained the pen name Carol Ann Hoel because the copyright registration says the author is Carol Ann Hoel. Steve’s last name is very long and hard to spell and pronounce; therefore, Carol Ann Ritchey is my easy-to-spell-pronounce-and-remember pen name for my screenplay, Buddy for David.
I am Carol Ann Ritchey. Who woulda thunk it?
