Am I right that what geth calls the coinbase is the same thing that parity calls the author?


Yes, but it's called --etherbase in Geth:

--etherbase value       Public address for block mining rewards (default = first account created) (default: "0")

And for Parity it's --author but --etherbase will work too:

--author ADDRESS               Specify the block author (aka "coinbase") address
                               for sending block rewards from sealed blocks.
                               NOTE: MINING WILL NOT WORK WITHOUT THIS OPTION.
                               (default: None)
--etherbase ADDRESS            Equivalent to --author ADDRESS.
