I want all the author links on my blog page to go to a specific url ("/about") instead of the individual author pages.

I know this can be done easily with JavaScript, but is there way to do it in functions.php?

did you try:

function wpse_author_link( $link, $author_id, $author_nicename ){
    return 'http://example.com/';
add_filter( 'author_link', 'wpse_author_link', 20, 3 );
