Multi-User 'Featured Authors' Plug-in

Hello all,

I'm seeking a Multi-User 'Featured Author' plug-in. The plugin would give site administrator the ability to select several 'featured/favourite' blog authors. The featured blogs will show in a homepage panel.

I'm looking for a way of obtaining the name and blog category fields alongside thier avatar. Does anybody know of a plugin which may do this?

If not, are there any easily manipulable feature/favourite plugins from which I could shift database fields to match those desired?

Thanks in advance
