I'm guessing here, but of her twelve books in the LC catalogue, ten
were published in 2001 or later.  Perhaps LC acquired several at once,
and thought she would be better in the 21st century?  there will
probably be a great many authors who write a lot of books in the 21st
century, but who were classified as 20th century because their first
book was published before 2000.  Difficult...
