Well, sort of. The original "Margaret Frazier" was a partnership
between Gail Frazier and Monica Pulver. They wrote the first few
books in the Dame Frevisse series together. The rest of the Dame
Frevisse books have all been by Gail working alone.

I would guess that Monica Pulver and Monica Ferris are the same
person and that "Crewel World" is hers? And actually, I haven't
encountered it; presumably that one _is_ needlework-related? Dame
Frevisse certainly isn't.
