So I've decided to become an Author. Frankly I have respect for the learning curve. My biggest problem that I have run into thus far is the conversations between characters.
So I would like to ask this community for advice.

It's the same advice as for everything in the writer's craft: Write a lot and fail a lot. Publish wherever, on amateur prose sites, listen to critique, and improve.
At first you'll keep writing crap. Then, for a long time you'll keep writing crap but gradually you'll start noticing where you're going wrong, and start improving. And finally, some five novels worth of text later, you'll start writing decently.
Remember, you'll never fix your mistakes without external feedback. Find some community editors/proofreaders to point your mistakes out to you (and next time you write, scan your own text for these, before submitting to editor!).
Dialogue is one of easier parts of writing. Absorb some rules that will make both your and your readers' life easier:
You can try some exercises:
...but the best way to get them to work is to interweave them as parts of your works, not separate pieces. Most of them can add quite a bit to the value of the story, when executed right. I'd say non-verbal dialogues are ones of the best. Then, of course, you will fail a lot - but that is expectable. Just keep trying.
