Keeping anonymity about real people in writing - a question
« on: February 18, 2010, 09:49:39 PM »
I am currently writing a non-fiction book and I have changed the names of everyone except those people who are dead now. One of them, my ex-girlfriend . . . well her mother HATES me and would probably welcome the chance to take me to court even though everything I have written about these friends is true.

I use my real name (and admit to some pretty embarrassing stuff) so do I need to change theirs or am I cool? What are the rules regarding this?

No. Use it as you wish and stick to it to the end or at least a long time. Real names are actually cool and shows that an author is confident of his/her works.
