Sometimes misspelled words are intentional, especially with names. This poetic license became a necessary tool to use while writing Shades of Gray.
I have always liked the name Greyson and knew this was a perfect fit for the hero of this book. As friends tend to do, this character’s name became shortened from Greyson to Grey by his fellow characters. (You would be surprised at how much input fictional characters have in the story the author is sharing.)
The words, Grey Gregory looked a little redundant on the printed page. Although a simple solution would be to change the vowel, this action created a problem distinguishing the character’s name from the color. To keep the homonym from becoming redundant, I swapped the vowels. I hope this action didn’t distract from the story.
