Creator Fact 👤
Lemony Snicket is the author of A Series of Unfortunate Events. Spoiler alert: his name is not actually Lemony Snicket.
Daniel Handler is his name, and he first came up with the Lemony Snicket pseudonym while researching far-right groups online and didn't want them to have his information.
He then ordered take-out, made business cards, and friends even dubbed a custom cocktail the Lemony Snicket - all before his fictional world become a huge success.
