separate author/copyright-royalty set up?

Fifteen years ago, I told my wife the book I envisioned (and am ready to publish) would be totally hers, including the copyright and all royalties. Therefore, is it possible for me to claim authorship of the novel I wrote while giving the above to her, i.e., can she open a Kindle DP account and upload the book naming me as the author but putting the royalties and copyright in her name? Btw, if you're curious--this has to do with my waking up in '97' to discover I was paralyzed & with my wife refusing to leave me despite the urging of her friends and family. It's about love and honor. Thanks!

Sure, she can do that, or you can do it for her, using her name, address, bank account, and SSN.

She can claim the copyright.

She would list your name as the author, and as far as Amz is concerned it would simply be a pen name.
