How do I credit the author when I know that they are using a pseudonym? For example the next story I want to read is by Anna Cora Mowatt writing under the name of Helen Berkeley. Do I just say it's by Mowatt? or by Berkeley? or Mowatt writing as Berkeley?

I can add the pseudonym to the database, so she will be searchable by either name. I'd suggest you credit her using the name she used for the actual piece.
