    This may win the dumbbell award, but please tell me if this is correct.
    I set a user up as an author and that user must have a WordPress account with the username I specified on the Users screen. To act as an "author" for the site, they log into WordPress, go to the site, and.... ? Or...?
    Thanks in advance. I'm sure this is staring me in the face.

    Got brave and set up a WP user with no blog. Then identified that user as an author for my other WP site, logged that user in, and did a test post. Voila!
    A nice way for my not-so-technical clients to add posts to their website without messing things up (too much).
