Hi Jamie and everyone!

When I used the advanced search typing tina gallo in the author edit box without the quotes, I got ten results that were all wrong, because none were written by her.

I went back and did an advanced search with the quotes around this author's name and got two wrong results which I think were the first two results out of the ten from the first search. Something is wrong with this search engine, I think. Should I assume there are no books by Tina Gallo in the collection?

Amber, the last name is Gallo (no w on the end). Tina is the first name.

Tell me if you find any books by her at all without getting hundreds or thousands of results and tell me how you do it?

I can find a Donald Gallo but without searching through lots of results I can't come up with others. I liked it better when I could type in Gallo and get all authors with that name, or even Tina Gallo (though I used to find the more you put in the more chances you had of not finding something that really was in the collection) and get only those authors.
