Note on the author's name

I assume Pamela Statham married Nick Drew. The NLA in at least one bibliographical entry has her name as Pamela Statham Drew - without a hyphen and with Drew as the surname. However, the James Stirling biography, which is over an inch thick and published by University of Western Australia Press, has the name hyphenated on the title page, imprint page, and dustjacket (though not on the spine) and I've decided to take that as standard on this website. It's annoying in that 'Statham' obviously comes at a different point in bibliographies than does 'Drew', so entries would be separated. I prefer 'Statham-Drew' anyway because it keeps her earlier writing when she was unmarried together with the later, when she wasn't.
