Paula (paulaan) | 7029 comments GR lists books as they are published with the name on the cover. Which is Sandy Sue Benitez, for a number of the books

lethe | 13747 comments Moreover, Sandy Sue Benitez needs to be the primary author for the books that were (first) published with that name. Have moved the name back to primary position for two of the books (for the third book it is not clear which name it was first published under).

lethe | 13747 comments No, that wouldn't make a difference. The name the book was first published under should be the primary author name on all editions. Please see https://www.goodreads.com/help/show/4... , in particular:

"Some authors write or have written under multiple names. When editing or adding information for a book written by an author with multiple names, enter the author's name as on the front cover as the primary author. The author's other names may be added in the other author fields." and
"In some cases, a book may be originally published under a pen name, but then later reissued under the author's original name. When this happens, the author listed for any and all editions should be the author name the book was originally published under"
