Scholarly books, articles and essays all count as secondary literature. This is a list of databases that may contain literature on your author and are ordered according to relative importance.
NOTE: You can search all of the databases below with a single search by using the "Articles" search on the Library Website, though often you get better results by searching them individually.

Try Scholar!

Google Scholar Search

Because Scholar is a full text search of books and articles, it uncovers secondary literature that other databases may miss.
