widget or control to display information about the author

I'm totally new to blogengine. Can you point me in the good direction to display, in the right column, information about the author?

By default, blogengine comes with a Textbox widget called "About the author". I don't want a static one like that. I'm looking for a box like that, but related to the post. For example when reading (permalink) a post I'd like to see the box containing a photo and some information about the author. I can do that by editing the theme and adding the author info I wand to display inside the post content...

But I'd like this information to be shown in a box in the right column (where the other widgets are).

Any ideas on how to do that?

Or inside a widget create the programming login to get the article being read, and from that I can get also the author information...

Thanks for letting me know
