This first gist shows you how to just output the title as an un-ordered list and remove all other content (meta, content, image). This is a page you create named author.php and you put this in the root of your child theme directory.
This second gist shows you how to paginate the author page. Five is a low number if you are only using the title, so hike that up. However, if you are showing all of the content — the default loop — having pagination on that page would be ideal. I will post this as another tutorial so it’s easier to find. This goes in your functions.php file.
All the best,
