The author can tell the story from any point of view- his own or the characters'. He can even change the point of view inside a work and write each chapter from different character's viewpoints or he can write the entire work from a single point of view. When the author/narrator is not a character in the work, it is third person narration or Omniscient narration. When the narrator is a character in the story, then it is first person narration.
