How many men have written work under a woman's name?

Can you think of any men who write, or have written, or create in any medium, under a woman's name? (I'm excluding transsexuals, and examples such as men in Shakespearean theatre and Japanese Noh Theatre.) There are plenty of women who have written under men's names, but I can't come up with a single example of the other way round. A true situation, or just my ignorance?

This is for an Outraged Essay I'm writing, about a person who uses a female persona but whose work is full of violence against women. I strongly suspect it's a man, and I'm curious how often men might have used women's names.
