A – Z challenge R is for Reuben

Reuben is the name I’ve chosen for the hero of my upcoming release with MuseItUp, Daisy’s Dilemma. It’s available to pre-order from MIU here and will be coming soon on other platforms.

Back to the blog in hand. What does Reuben mean? Simply son and probably from the Hebrew.

As to why I chose that name, I think I liked its strength and felt it was slightly old-fashioned in the way I needed it to be old-fashioned. One of the things the historical romance is up against is the fact that there were very few first names in general use. You’ve got to be imaginative, that’s part of what writers do, and here comes Reuben.

There are several contemporary and recent Rubens in the US music world and I discovered John Wayne played a character called Reuben ‘Rooster’ Cogburn – Hmn, not sure that helps my cause.

I’m just that little bit in love with my own Reuben at present and hope you will be, too. Look out for him – soonish. Anne
