Author MJ Compton's New Novel - And Jericho Burned

And Jericho Burned

About The Book:
    Lucy Callahan will do anything to rescue her sister from a cult, even marry a werewolf she’s just met. But the werewolves are working undercover for the government, and Lucy fears a confrontation between the agents and the cult could be deadly.
     Stoker Smith longs to be the best thing that ever happened to his human mate. He wants to take her home, start their family, and compose his music. And although his pack’s treaty with the government says he doesn’t have to work undercover now that he’s mated, he promised Lucy he’d get her sister out of the cult’s heavily armed compound. Lucy’s sister is now family and to a werewolf, family is everything.
But Operation Jericho quickly turns ugly, thrusting Lucy into the middle of her worst nightmare, where she must choose: her sister or her husband.

Did You Know?
    When I first started plotting out the Toke Lobo & the Pack series (And Jericho Burned is Book 2), I was working at a local TV station. Right before the Country Music Awards, the network would send us compilation CDs of the nominated songs. We would team up with a local country radio station for “Watch-and-Win” contests: watch the TV station’s 5 PM news for the question, then call in the radio station the next morning with the correct answer to win a CD.
    One of my favorite responsibilities was to come up with the questions and multiple-choice answers for the contest. The network would provide sample questions, but the local stations could pretty much do what they wanted.
    Not that I’m admitting anything, but the look on the news anchor’s face when she read, “Toby Keith is: a) from Oklahoma; b)a vegetarian; or c) a werewolf,” was priceless.

Meet MJ:
   MJ Compton grew up near Cardiff, New York, a place best known for its giant, which turned out to
be a fiction so incredible, PT Barnum himself borrowed it. That’s a tough act to follow, but MJ tried—by composing her own stories.
   Although her 30-year career in local television included such highlights as being bitten by a lion, preempting a US President for a college basketball game, giving a three-time world champion boxer a few black eyes, a mention in the Drudge Report, and meeting her husband, MJ’s urge to create her own stories never went away.
   MJ still lives in upstate New York with her husband. She’s a member of Romance Writers of America and Central New York Romance Writers. Music and cooking are two of her passions, and she enjoys baseball and college basketball, but she’s primarily focused on wine . . . and writing.
