Mina & Stryker

Warm air skated down the length of my neck, rousing me from sleep. If I hadn’t woken this way many, many times before, I would’ve reached for the blade hidden beneath my pillow.
Soft lips replaced the warm breath, and Stryker’s tangy scent overwhelmed my senses. I struggled against the grasp of slumber, hovering in that in-between space—unsure if this was real or another of my recurring dreams.
The weight of his body pinning my arm to my side pulled me out of sleep entirely, though, proving it—he—was real.
Angling my head away, I offered more of my neck to him, my free hand coming up to thrust into his low, sandy-blond ponytail. Teeth grazed over my delicate flesh and my groan filled the room.
It has been so long.
With that thought, my eyes popped open, my hold on him transforming from encouraging to resisting, chest tightening at the knowledge we would be violating promises made should this go any further.
“Stryker, wait. The Watchers’ Code.” I managed to gasp out. The light from the moon shone down on us from my open window.
“Mmm you’re not a watcher right now, though, are you?” The light scruff along his jaw scraped along my cheek when he lifted up to look at me, blue eyes heavy with want. “You aren’t breaking any rules, Mina. We can steal this opportunity. You and me. Right now.” Using the hand that wasn’t supporting him, Stryker drew a line along my collarbone and down to my breast before splaying his fingers over my heart. The traitorous organ increased in pace as he teased his touch over the goosebumped skin. “I need you, Mina. I’ve ached for you since the day you turned your back on us to chase your dream. If this pocket of time is the last we can ever be together, then I want to grab onto it with both hands and steal every moment that we can.”

BLURB

A romantic fantasy to melt your heart for Christmas from International Bestselling Author Toni Cox.


Anchorage has always been his home, but a murder forces Logan to flee to Canada. Detectives Johnson and Moore soon find him even there, and, desperate, the wolf shifter makes his way to Juneau on foot.

But fate throws its deadliest terrain and fierce predators in his path. Fatally injured and unable to continue, he is brought to G.L. Jones Expeditions – a dog-sledding operation – and right into the arms of Kimberly, the family vet.

Kimberly is slowly regaining her self-confidence after a mentally and emotionally abusive relationship, and she’s happy, now, with her family and her dogs.

When she gets brought this beautiful but broken wolf to nurse back to health, strange things happen as the wolf regains consciousness, and Kimberly isn’t always sure she can trust her mind. Whenever she touches him, her body tingles in the most unsettling way.

When he looks at her with his glacial blue eyes, it seems he can look right through her. The more he heals, the more she is convinced the wolf understands everything she’s saying – and she wants nothing more than to talk to him.

But there are cops in town looking for a fugitive and a wolf, and something isn’t adding up. Kimberly’s protective instincts kick in, but she’s in for more surprises with her rescued wolf than she could possibly comprehend.

Logan is soon not only fighting for his life but for Kimberly’s, too.

All gods are real…they’re just dicks.

Katrina was just a normal person with a simple life. Then, the Apocalypse descended upon her, and she spent two years fighting with and living among monsters.

They were neither pleasant nor polite neighbors, so she snapped and set out to Hell to kill the Devil.

That’s when the carnage started.

Action, adventure, humor, and chaos abound in this mythological fantasy supernatural thriller book box set that’s paced for edge of your seat excitement.

Join Katrina on three hair-raising adventures that pit her against God, the Devil, Zeus, Hera, and Cronos himself as she traipses across the universe breaking as many things as she fixes, fighting her way through Greek, Roman, and Judeo-Christian mythology, and causing trouble at every stop along the way.

If you love action-adventure fantasy stories, monsters, mythology, and heroines with their sass and snark turned up to 11, then this book is for you.










The world ended. 

I survived. 

Now, I want my life back. 

Two years ago, the world went through the end of times, the Apocalypse, or whatever the religious types call it. 

God beamed all the good boys and girls up to some giant party in the sky and left the rest of us asking one question: Why not me?

A rift opened in the desert. Hellspawn poured out onto Earth. 

They ravaged humanity, ripping us apart for their own pleasure, torturing us in the most grotesquely creative ways possible. 

It was bedlam; Hell on earth. And there was nothing we could do to stop it.

Then, one day, the monsters got bored and opted for a quiet life in the suburbs. 

They squatted in the homes of the people they had brutally murdered. They were neither pleasant or polite neighbors. They threw raucous parties late into the night and played their guitars too loud. They shot off fireworks in the dead of night. They lived like frat boys. 

We lived in constant fear and in a state of perpetual loneliness, expecting to die and scared to live. We tried to get along any way we could, even after we’d lost everything.

I’m sick of living with monsters, working with monsters, and fighting monsters.

I want my old life back. I want peace and quiet. I want the Apocalypse to END. 

There’s only one way to make that happen. Travel to Hell, find the Devil, and kill him. So that’s what I’m gonna do. 

My name is Katrina, and I really hate the Apocalypse.

What does fantasy mean to you? or how would you describe it?- Fantasy reminds me an incredible world, where reality takes a backseat and nothing is impossible.  I believe that you people can do anything.  That’s why we have creative drive and imaginations. 


Where do you get your ideas? I am gifted with an overactive imagination.  But like most authors, I am inspired by the world around me, people in my life, events in my life, and medias that are beloved to me, such as anime, manga, and fairy tales.


What is your writing process like? I work as an elementary teacher in addition to Sunday school, running the anime club at my district’s high school, and also summer school.  I write when three beautiful components come together: inspiration, motivation, and time.  Oh goodness, time managing!  I do outline the goals I want each chapter to achieve and key quotes I plan to use, but I also let the characters lead me in certain situations.  


What advice do you have for writers? First off, go for it! You are a shining star! Only you can write the story in your soul and the world wants to read it.  Don’t know what to write about?  I suggest to my students start with what you know and what you love.


Does a big ego help or hurt writers? In anything in life, if you do your best and have passion in your craft, you should be proud.  However, big egos turn me off when I encounter them in general.  Writers need their fans, people to give them a chance, no matter their experience or level of success.  We should love our work, but be humble and grateful to those who support us, always ready to improve and do our best.


What is your writing Kryptonite? Marketing.  I really should have gotten a business degree with my teaching one.  Actually composing a work?  Transitions can be tricky for me for some odd reason.


Do you try more to be original or to deliver to readers what they want? I have a story and characters that are begging to come into the world, so I write what my soul has created.  I might take certain scenes into consideration for what readers want, but I allow whatever flows out of my being to show itself.


Do you think someone could be a writer if they don’t feel emotions strongly? Absolutely! If you have something to share and an urge to write, by George, tally ho! 


Do you want each book to stand on its own, or are you trying to build a body of work with connections between each book? I have a writing style for sure with each of my series and works, but I also tweak them to have their own voices thanks to the characters and their target audiences.  I just want my audiences to find some happiness or a connection in any of my works. 🙂


If you could tell your younger writing self anything, what would it be? Go get a marketing degree! I am partly teasing.  I would tell my younger writer self to not be afraid to write anything you want because you have a rep of being a ‘goody-goody.’  


How did publishing your first book change your process of writing? I learned about the process of editing, truly editing and having to take criticisms for someone who wants your work to succeed, but a manuscript is an author’s baby and at first, you are protective of it.  Over time, I am more willing to listen, but also not afraid to defend something I am passionate about.  Like everything, communication is key to everything.  


What does literary success look like to you? When I have someone come to a convention to see me and beg for my next book or a selfie.  When I have someone draw fan art of my characters or want to marry Umbra or Jeremey or even be like Val or Stary, my heart is so full, my soul complete.  Seeing students I do book talks with come to me timidly to tell me they are starting a story and wanting to write, asking me for any advice or thanking me for not giving up on my dream, it makes me see that I do belong in this world.


Do you view writing as a kind of spiritual practice? For sure.  I have to get inside other characters’ heads, people I have created from nothing, beings that would not exist without me.  So, I have conversations with imaginary friends in my mind all the time.  And they boss me around and tell me what to do.  Then you have to research types of flamethrowers and how long an intestine would roll out if slashed open then run over by a car and you start to question your morals.  Balancing all this is such a delightful challenge.  How can it not be spiritual? 


What’s the most difficult thing about writing characters from the opposite sex? I think fully getting into someone’s head is a challenge.  I am lucky that I have brothers and have always gotten along well with guys, gaining insight to how they would handle certain situations.  I think the hardest part of writing as a guy for me is their lingo sometimes, especially in emotional scenes because I know media puts a lot of pressure on men to be these romantic leads, an unrealistic sappy women (like myself) want!


How do you select the names of your characters? Names are critical to me.  I always am seeking names that are unique, but still fairly easy to pronounce.  And the meanings for the names have to reflect the character, usually their personality or a deeper destiny for them.


If you didn’t write, what would you do for work? I would still teacher, but I also have an interest in voice acting and charity work involving cosplay.  Or a tour guide for Graceland. Elvis is my king.


If you had to do something differently as a child or teenager to become a better writer as an adult, what would you do? Take spelling and grammar a little more seriously earlier in life.  I waited until I was 15, when I decided to try to write a manuscript, that I needed to practice and care for it.


Do you believe in writer’s block? I have this often! It’s when my imaginary friends decide they don’t want to talk to me or proper wording fails me.  It is annoying.

Do you Google yourself? *Shyly raises hand* Guilty.  


What one thing would you give up to become a better writer? Stress! 


What is the most difficult part of your artistic process? We are our own worst critics.  Being proud of your work, the world only you can mold, but still wanting your reader to see all the love and work you put into it.  Knowing what you did was worthwhile.







Morgan was born and raised in the small, yet big enough town of Farmington, Missouri which has magic hidden within it along with bipolar weather. Before she found her path to teaching and the bridge that connects her to writing, she wanted to be a paleontologist, a teddy bear designer, an actor (which she still dreams about, but in anime voice acting form), and an American J-Pop idol. She had been writing since she was six, but never pondered it until her 6th-grade Communication Arts teacher gave her the title “The Queen of Details” and her 9th grade Communication Arts teacher informed her she would make a fantastic book character for HIS future book, where she laughed, but it triggered the question within her “Why can’t I write one?”

When she is not writing, daydreaming, snuggling with her hubby, or trying to educate and inspire young minds at her local school district, Morgan enjoys singing, acting, drawing, playing video games, organizing things, doing goofy voices, confusing people by making them smile with her cute, but unique fashion choices, engaging in social interaction with her friends, family, co-workers, love of her life, and church family, smiling and laughing to burn calories, having ‘me’ time by listening to music and walking, watching awesome TV shows and movies, and collecting adorable plushies, and geeky buttons and keychains along with buying way too many books, graphic tees, and dresses. She is in love with reading as well. Her guilty pleasure, however, is being a full otaku. Anime, manga, cosplay, Japanese culture, and more help identify and inspire her every day, giving her confidence and happiness.

Morgan’s first book, Spirit Vision, fuses Morgan’s love for her hometown and the people close in life, the world beyond life, finding the magic only you can have inside yourself, the power of love and friendship, and of writing in general. She hopes to make Spirit Vision a series and write many more books, sharing her always-on imagination with the world.

She also has deeply enjoyed writing poems and short stories for her two current collections (more to come in the future) and her new adult monster hunter series, The Hunter and The Bringer, being absorbed in the different type of writing style and colorful cast of characters.
