http://www.online-literature.com/cooperj/ :"On 1 January 1811, in Mamaroneck, New York, Cooper married Susan Augusta DeLancey (1792-1852) with whom he would have seven children: daughters Elizabeth (1811-1813), Susan (1813-1894), Caroline (1815-1892), Anne (1817-1885), and Maria (1819-1898); and sons Fenimore (1821-1823) and Paul (1824-1895)."Full names: Elizabeth Cooper, Susan Augusta Fenimore Cooper, Caroline Martha Cooper (Mrs. Henry Frederick Phinney), Anne Charlotte Cooper, Maria Frances Fenimore Cooper* (Mrs. Richard Cooper: Richard Cooper, JFC's nephew!), Fenimore Cooper, & Paul Fenimore Cooper.* Letters & Journals, vol. VI, p. 246, ftn. 2: The Cooper family Bible reads: "Maria Frances Fenimore Cooper, fourth living daughter of James Fenimore Cooper and Susan Augusta De Lancey, was married to Richard Cooper, son of Richard Fenimore Cooper, on the 10th day of December, Eighteen Hundred and Fifty, at Christ Church, Cooperstown, by the Rev. Stephen H. Battin."The middle name "Fenimore" (his mother's maiden name) was added in 1826. (Cooper had petitioned in vain for a double surname.) Apparently not all of the surviving children (five in number) adopted "Fenimore" as a middle name.Cooper's dates: Sept. 15, 1789 - Sept. 14, 1851; His wife: Mrs. James ["Fenimore" added] Cooper (maiden name: Susan Augusta De Lancey): b. Jan. 28, 1792."My mother [Mrs. William Cooper, maiden name: Elizabeth Fenimore] had a small property in this county, which she had inherited by a transfer of lands in New Jersey from her father, and which she offered to give me, if I would take her family name in lieu of that of Cooper. My father opposed it. The latter died, leaving me an equal portion of his own estate. My mother survived him several years and repeated the offer from time to time. I would not accept the offer of the eight or ten farms she owned, but promised to make the change so far as to add her name to my father's, and to use both as a family name. My mother died several years before the law was passed, the delay arising from the circumstance that I was implicated in many lawsuits and change might produce confusion. In 1826 I got extricated from the law and was going abroad for health and variety. That was the time to redeem the pledge given to my mother before her death. The application was, as I have said, to add Fenimore to the old family name, keeping both. The legislators, who always know more than their constituents, changed this application by authorizing me to use Fenimore as a middle name, a power I did not ask. As the law authorized me to use Fenimore, and my children were all so young as to render it a matter of indifference to them, I did no more in the way of legislation; though I have always used the name Fenimore as part of my family name, except in discourse. My wife and children do the same, as will probably any descendants I may have hereafter in the male line. Thus the reason I write Fenimore in full, abbreviating James for shortness." -The Letters and Journals of James Fenimore Cooper, vol. V, pp. 200- 201, Letter #893. To Philander Benjamin Prindle, From Hall, Cooperstown, 30 March, 1847.On the derivation of the name Fenimore, Cooper points out:"Fenimore is derived from a manor in Oxfordshire that in the Doomsday Book is called Finnimer and Finnimere. It is now called Finnimore. It is singular that while I was last in England proceedings were going on in Chancery to ascertain the rightful heir to the manor. I make no doubt the rightful male heir is in America, though the family is not uncommon. When the change in the spelling occurred I do not know, but I spell it as it was spelled by my mother before her marriage, and by my grandfather." Ibid., Vol. V, p. 201.In footnote 1 [-The Letters and Journals of James Fenimore Cooper, vol. I, p. 132] the following statement is made:"In fulfilment of a pledge made to his mother to perpetuate her family name, Cooper petitioned that he be authorized to add Fenimore to his father's name, retaining both. The bill was reported on 16 March  as "an act authorizing James Cooper to assume a middle name," referred to a Select Committee consisting of Alpheus Sherman, Henry B. Cowles, and Samuel S. Lush, and approved by the New York State Legislature on 17 March 1826."

James Patterson writes books with other authors because he is not smart enough to write his own book.
James Patterson doesn't write books, he writes outlines. He then gives the outlines to ghostwriters that then write the books under the 'James Patterson' name. After publishing James Patterson receives royalties and from that pays the ghostwriters a flat fee for their work. In short, he writes for his bank account.
James Patterson has written about 74 books.
Cause he feels like it!
The book of James
The 8 books he wrote that were published in the UK were published elsewhere as 6 books.
probably for us young kids.
Yes, James was originally written in Greek, as were all the New Testament books.
he writes sci-fi books
In his house in Jamaica, called GoldenEye.
Just the Epistle of James. It is not certain which James wrote it. It was probably 'James the brother of the Lord', who was neither of the apostles, James son of Zebedee or James son of Alpheus.
He rarely writes his own books. He provides outlines to other people and let's them write.
I think he wrote a journey book, but the most interesting facts must be in books of the rest of the expedition !
