Neither appears to be a claimed profile, so no, staff is not needed to do the merge.

Moreover, it does not appear that they should in fact be merged at all, although individual books may need their author edited.

We treat them like a pen-name: https://www.goodreads.com/help/show/4...
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 - so the reissued edition would need its primary author name changed to the originally published pen name, with the additional name added as secondary for all editions with it on the cover. Doing this will allow the various editions to be combined.
