After reading all of the various replies to this thread
trying to get a solution using AuthUser, I should probably
make it clear that the solution I'm giving above doesn't
use AuthUser or require any interaction with it.

(Since Neil isn't authenticating users, we really don't
want/need AuthUser in the picture.)

It also might be a good idea to change the name=author field
to be

     $[Name]: (:input text name=author value="{$Author}":)\\

so that any existing Author name is already filled in.
