I’ve decided to abandon my previous pen name of Frank Morrison (a hybrid of my middle name and my grandmother’s maiden name, for the curious) for my real name — Zachary Stockill.
I was nervous about “coming out” under my real name to readers of my book, and this website. I initially wrote under a pen name because I didn’t really want some of my demons on display for friends and family. I was embarrassed, plain and simple.
Today, I am publishing under my real name because I want to grow, and expand, and create new products and services, and doing all of this under a pen name feels somewhat disingenuous.
I hope you can understand why I once wrote to you as Frank Morrison, and why I’m writing to you today under my real name.
One of you reached out to me with a very moving letter last week:
So glad you have chosen to use your real name. That’s freedom man. Love it.
Bought your book a month ago and read it in two days. I am 42 years old and was ashamed of my “problem.” It was my issue and despite multiple efforts never found any freedom from my self inflicted torment.
Since reading your book I know I am on the right path. I have taken ownership of this problem in my life and stopped playing the victim. I now have tools to use when my mind starts to turn to jealous thoughts… My turnaround times are much shorter.
I am enjoying life and true intimacy with my fiancé. She notices the difference in me and is quite proud of me. That’s all I really ever wanted from her. Thank you Zachary for giving me my life back.
This is freedom.
I’m so fortunate to be in a position where I can help others achieve their personal freedom. And it’s strangely liberating to be thanked as “Zachary” for my efforts, which is why I decided to write to you today.
I cannot express to you how rewarding it has been to share my book with you, and feature your stories on this website.
I can only hope that by writing under my real name, and expanding my efforts, more people can get the help they need to overcome retroactive jealousy.
