Why Your Family Name Did Not Come From a Mistake at Ellis Island

This is a super interesting little article for two reasons:

  1. My husband came over in 2007 (A HUNDRED YEARS LATER) from Europe and had a name issue due to alphabet differences.
  2. My first book Kevin starts at Ellis Island because he’s from another planet, so in an odd, slightly humorous to me way he “immigrated”. (Him being sent there against his will as a prisoner is a whole other issue.)

Anyway, check this out if you like. I thought it was interesting.

And, you can get Kevin HERE.

What’s in a name?

Woah there!

Please excuse the name change. For all you lovely people following me, my url is now: kdreed.wordpress.com because that’s my name. Or pen name. Or professional name. Or the name I write under. You can choose the phrase you prefer. See? I’m nice like that. A blog tailored to everyone.

I decided to switch up the name so I’ll be easier to find after I publish. Which is in a few weeks.

Ah! Exciting! You read right! I’ll be publishing my first piece in just a short while. More details will come soon, so stay tuned…

Thanks for reading!
