A toy company has created a toy line inspired by the Cat-Boy series, written by Xlibris author James Compton. These toy figurines were recently shown in an international toy exhibit in Chicago. This achievement coincides with the series’ fifth year anniversary. Also known as Michael Morgan, James Compton is one of Xlibris’ accomplished authors.
The main character of the book is based on Maricopa County, Arizona Sheriff, Joe Arpaio, considered to be the most popular Sheriff in the US. Sheriff Joe has expressed his full support for the Cat-Boy series through social media and a testimonial on the book’s back cover. Over the years, the two have kept their friendship.
It is my delight that Michael Morgan based the character “General Joe” on me, and I am very impressed by his writing talent and publishing ambitions. Keep up the good work!
