I don't think I am.  There is not a single solitary book in the whole of 
the Hebrew Bible that names an author.  And I don't care what the colophons 
of various manuscripts say to the contrary.  Hence, your "authors" will all 
be imaginary- like the characters of Tolkeins books or Lewis's chronicles 
of Narnia.
