Katy (katyhuthjones) | 19 comments Navajo Code Talkers: Native American Heroes 0936389524 (ISBN13: 9780936389523) is one of my early books that I wrote under the name Catherine Jones. Because it's a fairly common name I have since decided to write everything as Katy Huth Jones, and that is the name of my Goodreads Author Page. Navajo Code Talkers is being attributed to a different Catherine Jones. Is it possible to change this? Thank you.

Cait (tigercait) | 5005 comments Did you write any other books under the name Catherine Jones, or just that one?

Cait (tigercait) | 5005 comments Olivia, since the books were originally published under the name "Catherine Jones", that name should remain as the primary author. "Katy Huth Jones" should be added as a secondary author.

I've disambiguated a Catherine Jones to point to your actual author profile, here:

Katy (katyhuthjones) | 19 comments Thank you, Cait. The only other book I wrote as Catherine Jones was part of a reading series and is not listed on Goodreads. I do have a short story in the anthology Mistletoe Madness 0971834822 (ISBN13: 9780971834828) and wondered how it was possible to give all the authors in that book credit on Goodreads. :)

Cait (tigercait) | 5005 comments I can add you as a contributor to that anthology, and the other contributors as well if you have a list of them. As Katy Huth Jones, yes?
