I'm not sure where this belongs.  The author listed on PBS for the following books in a series by Arabasque is not the correct author.  http://www.paperbackswap.com/Love-Arabesque-Celeste-Norfleet/book/0373830505/

PBS lists Celeste Norfleet as the author and Amazon.com has a Rochelle Alers.  I'm more inclined to believe Amazon since the cover of the book has Rochelle's name placed pretty prominently. 

Is there someone here I can contact about this?

You can submit a book data edit (under More Options on the book's page). Submit the correction and give them your reasons why.

I didn't even notice that tab there under More Options.  Thanks.  I sent in the edit request.

If they deny the change for some reason they will PM you and tell you why.  If they approve they won't say anything and just make the change.

It was approved, so the change should show up at PBS soon.  (I also researched the author for this book; it is helpful if you do the research when you send in an edit if you detail the places you already looked, to help the approver save some time and not research the same sites...)

(There is a "Reason For Edit" box at the top of the Data Edit submission page where you can list the reason and also list the research already done.)
