About the author:
Toinette "Toi" Thomas was born and raised in Texas where she learned to appreciate the grandeur of things in life. She was raised by her loving parents, Dennis and Navonia, along with her older sister Tori.
Growing up, Toi was a bit of a tomboy, but was not without poise and grace. She loved to play outside, to build and break things, to dance and write, and to read. She also loved to cook and by the time she was in third grade, Toi could prepare a full hot breakfast on her own. It was also during these early years that her love of movies and music developed.
When Toi's family moved to Virginia, she was just eleven years old; soon, she would be a pre-teen and then a teenager. Toi always seemed to be very mature for her age and sometimes a little too serious for her peers, but she was a great conversationalist, especially if the topic was movies, music, or TV. During high school, Toi's literary interest began to expand. She started reading many classic stories such as the original plays of Peter Pan, novels such as To Kill a Mocking Bird, many works of Shakespeare and Edgar Allan Poe.
When it was time for Toi to go off to college, she and her mother managed to find an in-state school that was far enough away from home, for her to have the true college experience. She attended what is now called The University of Virginia's College at Wise. It was there that Toi met her future husband, Eric Thomas. As if the fact that they both had the same last name wasn't enough to bring the two together, their mutual love of food, music, comic books, and movies was.
Toi now works as a special education teacher's assistant in Virginia Beach. While Toi finds her job to be very rewarding, she never seems to let up on the other things she finds of interest in her life. Toi constantly bakes goodies and treats for friends and family, and makes an extra effort to assist with computer issues whenever she can. While Toi's love of movies will never fade, she also makes time to read a good book from time to time.
It was in the fall of 2009 that Toi got the inspiration to write her first book. Her first novel is just one part of the whole story she plans to someday share with the world as, The Eternal Curse Series.
Toi is also working on other stories outside of the EC series and has been actively blogging, interviewing, and reviewing for three years and sees no point in stopping any time soon.
"You have plenty of time to change your mind. You have not yet seen the monster I can be."
Giovanni has been waiting his whole life to meet someone like Mira, someone from the outside world who might be able to help him. He wonders if there really is help for him as he continues to hold tightly onto dark secrets and even darker memories. Giovanni wants to be hopeful and he wants to accept Mira's help, but first he has to look himself in the mirror and face what he truly is- and that is a reality no one is quite ready to accept.
Searching for new purpose and meaning in her life, Mira meets Giovanni online and an exciting and, in some ways, scary friendship is developed. Mira decides one day to meet Giovanni in person, at his secluded country home, in order to aid him on his journey of self-discovery. What these two are able to discover will not only test their strength and will, but it will stretch the limits of their minds and catapult them into a world where earth, Heaven, and Hell collide.
Giovanni's Angel is the story of a man who may just be the answer to a spiritual war swiftly heading his way- but for now, he just wants to be a man.
