And of course, those are the ones of interest here at Toobworld Central!
I can't speak for the other worlds in the TV Universe, but those authors to be found from Toobworld would include the following:
First up, we have quite a few mystery and thriller writers:
Ben Coleman - 'Duet'
Jessica Fletcher - 'Murder, She Wrote'
Glynis Granville - 'Glynis'
Ian Stark - 'Stark Raving Mad'
Bram Shepherd - 'Bram & Alice'
Doug Kirkfield - 'The Boys'
Patrick Glover - 'Father, Dear Father'
Jason King - 'Jason King'
Robin Masters - 'Magnum P.I.'
Maxwell Beckett - 'Over My Dead Body'
Paul Temple - 'Paul Temple'
Nicholas Fleming - 'Sable'
Ernesta and Gwendolyn Snoop - 'The Snoop Sisters'
Daniel Stone - 'Stone'
Dorothy McNab - 'Two's Company'
Rupert Wilde - 'The Wilde Alliance'
Abigail Mitchell - 'Columbo' ("Try And Catch Me")
Franklin & Ferris - 'Columbo' ("Murder By The Book")
Allen Mallory - 'Columbo' ("Publish Or Perish")
Ariadne Oliver - 'Poirot' ("Cards On The Table")
Clarissa Naughton - 'Poirot' ("The Mystery of Hunter's Lodge")
Jose Chung - 'The X-Files' & 'Millennium'
Terrance Sterling - 'Stark Raving Mad'
And there would be the romance writers:
Salome Otterbourne - 'Poirot' ("Death On The Nile")
Crystal Love aka Charlie Wayne - 'Oh, Madeline'
Definitely all of the self-help books would be there, except for those by Dick Loudon. Any books mentioned in the TV series 'Newhart' - including "Murder At The Stratleigh", in which you could hear a pig drop - were all part of a fever dream suffered by Dr. Bob Hartley after eating Japanese food just before bedtime.
A few authors of children's stories:
Professor Huggles - 'Stark Raving Mad'
Margot Foster - 'Double Trouble'
Nancy Krieger Weston - 'thirtysomething'
And among the millions of others:
Rob Petrie - 'The Dick Van Dyke Show' (to be found in the biography section)
Harper Worthington Yates - 'The Dick Van Dyke Show' (a collection of his plays, including "Baby Fat")
Henry Walden - 'The Dick Van Dyke Show' (in the history section)
Maurice James Kingsley - 'Blackeyes'
Clara Burrell - 'No, Honestly'
Max Harlow - 'Normal Life'
Roger Thomas - 'What's Happening Now!'
Cameron Garrett Brooks - 'Window on Main Street'
