In case you're wondering , yes , Maltomeal really is my name. My nick name , that is. My parents gave me this name , due to the fact that as a young child , my favorite breakfast cereal was Maltomeal. I suppose they thought it was amusing. Even I have to admit that I found it amusing , as did my friends and class mates. A few years ago , I decided that I would use it a pen name to write stories about celebrities.
