Andrea,

If you can accept the author's name on a separate line in the toc and
also a little less automation than the example that uses user structure
variables, you might consider the \writebetweenlist command. In addition
to the wiki entry (which is incomplete with respect to the parameters),
see the recent email thread with the subject "Chapter precis
<http://www.mail-archive.com/ntg-context%40ntg.nl/msg75670.html>." The
following may be a useful starting point:

\starttext
\completecontent
\chapter{This is a chapter}
\writebetweenlist[chapter][location=here]{\hskip4em\it Author Name}
\input ward
\section{A section}
\section{Another section}
\chapter{Another chapter}
\stoptext
