Fiorella is fascinated by the fact that many unpublished romance writers want to be known by their future pseudonyms.
It's sort of like having a secret identity, Fio thinks, like when she formed a girls' "gang" in the neighborhood of her childhood. We all had wolf names--Fio was Silver Wolf.
It's like Clark Kent and Wonder Woman and Zorro. Any name but what our parents gave us.
Why else do I call myself Fiorella?
