    can u use different names?

    Okay so I have had a lot of tragic things happen in my life more than a normal person probably should and I wanted to write about it. I want to know if I could write it as a memoir but change the charcters names?

    About the only thing that I can say is that I read a lot of true crime and sometimes the author will introduce a new character with an asterisk and a footnote that it is not their real name and their real name is being kept out of the book for privacy reasons. Good luck!

    how about if you actually write something and worry about this later.

    You can mention in the foreword that some of the names have been changed to protect people's privacy.
