This name change evolved from a pseudonym to an actual identity.

Anonymous Birth Name (1956-late 1980s)

Constantine started her writing career with her first publication in 1987 titled The Enchantment of Flesh and Spirits.

Storm Constantine (late 1980s-2021)

Constantine: (Latin) standing together

She explained the reason for this pseudonymous and eventual legal name change in an interview:

I feel that as people grow up, they don’t always fit the names they’ve been given by their parents. So I decided quite early on that I wanted a different name.

Constantine became well-known for her Wraeththu series. She was also well-known for her gothic aesthetic, both in her writing and in her own daily life. She would eventually open her own press called Immanion Press.
