We have kept the two Ellen Hopkinses separate so far, but I found out that they're actually the same person.

I am talking about

Ellen Hopkins, the YA novelist


Ellen Hopkins, who writes nonfiction.

The proof that the YA novelist actually wrote the non-fictions:

I just compared the books, and a few of the second Ellen Hopkins' books appear to belong someone else, e.g. I can't find this book on the first Ellen Hopkins' site.

What do we do about this?

Beth (bethjustbeth) | 1586 comments Contact the first Ellen Hopkins, before doing anything, to confirm. She's a Goodreads Author, so she would be managing her own profile. If they're separate, I would imagine it's intentional.

Melody (runningtune) | 13259 comments The goodread's author, Ellen Hopkins is the profile with the double space. Any new additions that are not edited will be added to the profile without the space. The profiles do not need to be merged, but the books written by th ya novelist should be moved over one at a time.

The blog should be moved over too.

Melody (runningtune) | 13259 comments I think the profiles are both fixed. There is another listing for the goodreads' author Ellen Hopkins that rivka will need to merge.

Edit: Nope, not fixed. The quotes and events seem to belong to the goodreads' author. It would probably be simplier if the profiles were the other way around.
