All books appear to be published as Jen Bryant. However, as Jennifer Fisher Bryant encompasses that name, books can use that name. As she is not a GR author, and there doesn't seem to be a conflict with other authors, thereby needing disambiguation, it's unclear to me why we would want to do this.

In any case, either a profile needs to be merged, or books need to have the author name corrected and titles combined.

Abcdarian | 19392 comments Merged Jen into Jennifer, who had the more complete author page, then changed name to Jen. It's on her web page as well as the books; like you, I see no reason to have an obscure longer version of the name. I'm even torn about having added the full name in the bio considering I don't know where it's from.


Elizabeth (Alaska) | 6592 comments Thank you. That's the way I thought it should be done, and am glad someone else agreed. ;-)
