A good, authoritative source for answering this question is Encyclopedia Britannica, which typically lists the pseudonyms that an author has used.  You can access it here:

On Britannica's main page, midway down, there is a Explore Britannica Academic section. Click on the word Biographies.  This will present you with a long list of individuals. On the left under "Known For" click in the box and scroll down through the drop down menu until you see the Literature section.  Click on Biographies.  If an author has written under a pseudonym, it will typically be mentioned in these first few sentences of their biography.

The link below will take you to our literature databases.  You can search in any of those databases for authors and their pseudonyms.
