FYC: 
I, Madman (1989) (author in question - Malcolm Brand)
In the Mouth of Madness (1994) (author in question - Sutter Cane)

Both movies are philosophical surreal experiences dwelling on connection between fiction and real life. While authors in question are more of supporting characters, their work and life is integral to both plots. 

Oh, and The Third Man (1949)!

Several good ones. I go for The Shining (1980).
