Samantha (samanthacole) | 56 comments Please remove Angel Power from my author page. It is by another author of the same name. Thanks.

Aakash (mistyanon) Librarians

for now I have removed author completely if someone can locate its author then do add.
i think stephen cole is author of the book but couldn't' verify.

lethe | 13731 comments According to the British National Bibliography, this was written by a Samantha Cole born 1971: http://search.bl.uk/primo_library/lib...

Have moved the book to a new Samantha Cole profile with two spaces.

Aakash, please review the section of the Manual on disambiguating authors with the same name: https://www.goodreads.com/help/show/2...

Aakash (mistyanon) @Rivka, Yeah I know that but in this case I was unable to find the author of the book.
Thats why I left the field empty.

Unless there is evidence the author that was listed is not the author, they should remain. (In this case, should have been disambiguated, as lethe did.)

And in general, if you see a request or book record you are unsure what to do with, please leave it for a more experienced librarian.

Aakash (mistyanon) Sure. Okay thanks for guidelines. :)
