The quickest way to find the page for a specific author is usually to type their name in the "search site" box in the upper right corner.

Or, if you have added a book by that author to your LT "Your books" catalog, you can click on their name in that listing to go to their page and see what else they've written.

Please try the search box at the upper right. Type in your author, click on the magnifying glass and they should come right up. The results will be a combination of both authors and their works. If you want just a list of authors click on that option along the left hand side of the result page.

Um, you may want to turn off the CAPS LOCK on your computer. Most online folks consider that the same as shouting at another person in their face and in very bad taste.

Hope this helps,

You can also go into your library and click on the authors listed there to pull up their works.

For example, here's your library:


You have works by Steven Gaines. If you click on his name, it'll lead you to his author page:


Again, hope this helps,

As an aside, Mr. Gaines author's page needs some combining if anyone want to look it over. Off to bellringing so I don't have time. Thanks.

Another way to get to an author is to either click on the image of one of their books in the library or type in the title of a book of theirs...and in either case, click on the link to the author's name.

Welcome to LT, and good luck!
