Author Sort metadata problem with Faith Martin

For some reason I cannot fathom, when I am editing the metadata for the books of author Faith Martin, all 17 of them, the Author Sort field has a pink background if I enter Martin, Faith,.

If I click on Set Author Sort from Author it gets filled with MARTIN, FAITH all upper-case on a green background.

Re-entering the correct value brings back the pink background.

Any idea ?

The pink means it does not agree with the author sort value set on the author record.

If you bring up the category browser, find the author and then right-click to select the option for changing the author sort value it will change it for all books associated with that author.

This I was aware of.

Worked, thank you.
Interestingly, I searched the library, and that author was the only one with a ~[A-Z][A-Z] in the AuthorSort.
