In your main block you call ReadAuthor and pass it the variables l and count,
yet neither of these have a known value since they were never initialized at
the start of the program. Place statements at the start of the main block to
initialize all global counters to 0 and that should fix that problem.

You might also do away with the cumbersome "while not Eoln do" and the
Read() statements to get input, and replace them with simpler ReadLn()
statements. ReadLn() will take input until <enter> is pressed. Also, switch
your arrays of char to strings and I bet you could reduce the entire program
to less than half it's size, removing the need for all loops except the main
