Nathan "N.R." Gaddis (nathannrgaddis) | 8 comments There are multiple Wendy Walker profiles and authors ; they are not presently correctly separated. In particular, this goodreads author page : https://www.goodreads.com/author/show... has several books not written by her. A second goodreads Wendy Walker is found here :: https://www.goodreads.com/author/show... I suspect there may be more. I am not able to make corrections because both of those Wendy Walkers, I am told, are responsible for their own profiles as goodreads authors.

thanks.

Cait (tigercait) | 5005 comments We currently have 8 Wendy Walkers listed:

The ones who are members of the GR Authors program are responsible for their own profiles, yes, but we can shift the book listings if we need to. Are you familiar with these authors' works? I'll give them a look now to see if there are obvious misattributions, but sometimes these things are tricky....

Cait (tigercait) | 5005 comments Okay, I combined some duplicates and I think I have all of the authors sorted out.

This is the default Wendy Walker (Wendy^Walker), who is a GR Author and who is going to accumulate newly created or imported book records until a librarian comes along to clean them up:
https://www.goodreads.com/author/show...

This is the other Wendy Walker (Wendy^^^Walker) in the GR Author program:
https://www.goodreads.com/author/show...

This is a third Wendy Walker profile (Wendy^^Walker) which doubtless contains many different Wendys who are not easily distinguishable:
https://www.goodreads.com/author/show...

And then there are two authors who use their middle names or initials when publishing. We like them for that. :)

If Wendy^Walker is being bothered by the influx of new book records whenever a different Wendy publishes something, a GR employee would be able to change her spacing so that she's no longer the default profile.

Thanks, Cait. One-carot Wendy is the only one I'm familiar with and her books look correctly Librarian'd at the moment. Thanks for your help.
