I do not want to click "Change the Author" at creation/editing material. How can I set the author by default?

The author is set via who ever is logged in and creating the article/item.
If you want to change the author you will have to write a fictitious alias at the point of publishing. Or, edit your username to 'Fred' instead of Superuser in Joomla's User menu.
