WordPress - Loop with post and Authors (1 post)

    So, this my be tricky but if anyone can help please do.

    What im after is a WordPress site that combines both posts and users/authors all in the same loop.

    So on the home page you would have the lastest post/authors. The users pieces would be some of the info from the authors profile and when click would that you to there full profile.

    I've been trying to think of ways to do this but I can think of a way to loop through the post and the authors in the same loop. One way I thought I could achieve something was to create a "dummy" post with the authors name as the title and then link that through to the post creator profile which would be the author... also I would set a category for profiles etc. but this seems rather cumbersome. I also thought If i took this route I could set a function that everytime a new author is created it automatically creates that post.

    If anyone one out there has a been idea help me out....

    thanks people
