Doesn't she have a murder mystery published under a different name? When I worked at B&N I remember more than a couple people mentioning it.
I was under the impression that it came out, circa 2001. But I have no idea what it is.
No, she floated the idea of publishing future works under a pseudonym midway through the last decade, but eventually decided against it (partly because she figured the press would find out about it pretty quickly anyway).
The rumors of the pseudonymous novel are older than that, however. I'm aware of what she said later, but it was believed around 2000-1 that she had published a mystery novel under a pseudonym.
