I'm new to this group & want to know how to correct mistakes. One of my friends writes under the name 'Kate Brady'. I notice someone has listed a book ('Holistic London: The London Guide to Mind, Body & Spirit') as written by my friend. This book was edited by someone of the same name, though the other Kate Brady is obviously British, while my friend is American. The London book was published in 1990, long before my friend published anything. How can this mistake be corrected?

In such cases, the solution is to "split" the author page, which will create separate sub-pages for each author.
I've done that.
Your friend now has a separate page at:
