Ellen (karenvirginiaflaxman) | 115 comments This author has two profiles:

https://www.goodreads.com/author/show...

https://www.goodreads.com/author/show...

Only one book is shown in the second profile, while the remainder of her books are in the first profile. I have tried to disambiguate the author, but am unable to do so. I also tried to move the book from the second profile to the first, but failed. Would one of you please assist me with relocating the one book from the second profile and then deleting the second profile? Thank you!

Tytti | 163 comments Are you sure it's the same author? She seems too young for someone that has published a book in 1982? And the name is different.

Ellen (karenvirginiaflaxman) | 115 comments According to her website, which shows the same picture of her, she's written quite a number of books.

Edit: The name is correctly entered as Welch, not Welsh. https://gurdjieffbooks.wordpress.com/

Removed picture, changed details.

Sean Taylor | 3 comments Hello I am the British children's author Sean Taylor. Have had a Good Reads account for the past three years. Can you help me with a disambiguation issue? There is another Sean Taylor on your site (Sean H Taylor) and, though none of his titles come up on my account page, 15 of my books appear listed on his page. As you'll see, he writes comic book stories with a sadomasochistic slant. And this is unlikely to be what my readers are after! Could somebody unlink my books from his account? The following are the 15 titles in question: HOOT OWL; THAT'S WHAT MAKES A HIPPOPOTAMUS SMILE; ROBOT RUMPUS; THE GRIZZLY BEAR WITH THE FRIZZLY HAIR; FIDDLESTICKS; MOJO AND WEEZA AND THE NEW HAT; SAPERLIPOPETE; BRER RABBIT'S TRICKBAG; LA CAMPEONE MUNDIAL...;WHAT A NAUGHTY BIRD; WHERE THE BUGABOO LIVES;CROCODILES ARE THE BEST ANIMALS OF ALL;WE HAVE LIFT OFF; IT'S A GROOVY WORLD, ALFREDO and HEADFIRST INTO THE PORRIDGE. I will be grateful for your help. Thanks and all the best, Sean T
