LEXI CONNOR

When I first chose this as my pen name, this is how I came up with it.

LEXI came from two women, the love interest of Methos from the Highlander TV Series (played by Ocean Hellman) and the modern day laird's wife from the Monarch of the Glen TV Series (played by Dawn Steele).

For the last name CONNOR, I used one of my all-time favorite fictional characters, Connor MacLeod, from the original Highlander movie.


If you have not seen Highlander (the original, not the rest of the movies), GET THEE A COPY! It is totally worth it! Sean Connery, men in kilts, sword fights, immortality, gorgeous Scottish scenery and romance...what's not to love?

I always thought your name was a clever play on "lexicon". Now I know.

LOL, Jane! One of my friends mentioned that when I told her the name. That had never even crossed my mind. See, I spend too much time in the fictional world!

I LOVE the first Highlander movie too! (And only that one. The rest bug me and so did the series.) I always wondered how you came up with the name. But I'm sad to hear you are changing it. I like it but I like your new name too! Wishing you all the best with your new name!

Yeah, Nicole, I especially HATED the last Highlander movie. I did love the series though. I guess to me it was an extension of the movie and they stuck to the original ideas (except that if Connor was The One at the end of the movie then that would've meant Duncan was dead).

Thanks for the well wishes on the new name! I'm pretty excited!
