By default the author info is hidden in Twenty Eleven WordPress theme if you’re the only author on your blog. If there’s more than one writer the author info will be displayed…

To enable the single author info you have to editor the style.css file that comes with the Twenty Eleven theme:

.single-author .entry-meta .by-author {
 display: none;
}

Change to read as following (display: none to inline):

.single-author .entry-meta .by-author {
 display: inline;
}

Now Google will be able to get the author infos even if you’re the only writer on your blog.

It would be better to put all theme changes like this css hack into a child theme. Otherwise they’ll soon be destroyed with upcoming Twenty Eleven theme updates.

Update 2012/08/05:

Download the TwentyEleven child theme with author info box always visible.
