Authors/Characters

A weird thought just occurred to me. (Yeah, I realize nothing but weird thoughts occur to me.) Some names are more common than others. Can you think of an instance where an author named a character after him/herself yet the character was not a fictional extension of the author? Or do they all instinctively not use their own names? Imagine the implications. Millions of parallel universes where certain names simply don’t exist. No Stephens exist in Stephen King’s universes. No one named Pat or Patty in any Patricia Brigg worlds.

Like I said. Just a weird thought.
