1. Goodreads disambiguates between authors of the same name by using spaces between the author's first and last name.

2. Your author profile has 3 spaces: Lisa^^^Taylor, where the ^ equals a space.

3. When publications are automatically imported from Amazon or other sources, the "handshake' between Goodreads and the other source do not recognize multiple spaces, so the work goes to the default 1 space profile.

4. When you ask for assistance, it is helpful to include that your author profile has 3 spaces.
