Is there really a book called Empty Planet by David Hansberry

Empty Planet is a fictional book in the TV series Criminal Minds (Season 2, Episode 8: "Empty Planet").

The author of the book "Empty Planet" is Professor Ursula Kent (played by JoBeth Williams) but she used David Hansberry as a pseudonym.

Anecdotal sources suggest that she was inspired to write it when she gave up her child for adoption. Its primary theme appears to be how machines replace human beings and inspired Kenneth to start his bombing campaign.
