Package.json should have a valid "author" key (Test timed out)

Tell us what’s happening:
I followed the instruction
inserted the author:

	"author": "newbreaker12",
	"name": "fcc-learn-npm-package-json",
	"dependencies": {
		"express": "^4.14.0"
	"main": "server.js",
	"scripts": {
		"start": "node server.js"
	"repository": {
		"type": "git",
		"url": "https://idontknow/todo.git"

But I have this error:
package.json should have a valid “author” key

Indeed replacing the '"." with “–” it worked.
