    You need to remove the rel='author' from your homepage

    Create an about/author page for each of you on your blog/website.

    On each of your about/author pages, you need to add a link to your appropriate G+ profiles using ---> rel='me'

    Next you need to post a link to each of your about/author pages on your Google+ profiles.

    Place a link to this page in both the"Contributor to" section & the "Other Profiles" section.

    Then test the results: Google --> webmaster --> tools --> richsnippets

    Just make sure that on each of your posts, you include a link to your about/author page using ---> rel='author'

    Alternatively, you can do accomplish this the way that you have set it up right now...but having ---> rel='author' on your home page IS a bad thing.

    Yet the way I set it up, is to leverage the ability of having a secondary "author" hub for my other social networking profiles.
    On my about/author page, I link out to sites like LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, etc using ----> rel='me'

    Anyways, there's actually a very important "rel tag" that should be used for the homepage. ----> rel='publisher'

    If you have a Google+ PAGE setup for your brand/blog...you will be linking to your Google+ page from your
    website using ---> rel='publisher' (only include this on your homepage)

    Just make sure you have the hompage URL setup on the Google+ PAGE.
    Then once you have rel='publisher' on your homepage, just head over to the G+ page and ask G+ to verify the URL.

    And that's it...if you have any other questions related to Authorship or AuthorRank....feel free to ask.
