A.K. Morgen lives on a sprawling two and a half acre country lot in the heart of Arkansas with her childhood sweetheart and husband of nine years, and their four crazy pets. She graduated summa cum laude with her Bachelor of Science degree in Forensic Psychology in 2009, and immediately entered graduate school. In 2012, Ayden completed her graduate degree in Criminal Justice and Law, once again graduating at the top of her class. Ayden now puts her education to use for the state of Arkansas, where she works for the Department of Human Services within the Division of Aging and Adult Services.
Ayden wrote her first story at the age of seven, and published her first book locally at the age of twelve. She’s written in a variety of genres since, and has published numerous poems and research articles over the years.
When she’s not writing, she spends her time teaching her nieces and nephews things their mothers wish they didn’t know, conspiring with her sister on new and inventive ways to drive her husband mad, dancing in the grocery store, building a spork army, and fundraising for nonprofits close to her heart. She’s a part-time volunteer coordinator for one of her favorite charities, and loves to spend her free time getting into mischief with her favorite partners-in-crime.

Arionna Jacobs and Dace Matthews face a threat unlike any before. Ragnarök is coming and they aren’t strong enough to stop it.
Arionna thought she understood sacrifice, but she never counted on her destiny tearing Dace apart. Ever since she nearly died, he has been consumed with guilt. Now it threatens to turn him into the monster he always feared.
Can she convince him to let the past go, or is her true destiny to sacrifice her heart in exchange for the lives of the people she loves?
When Arionna Jacobs meets Dace Matthews, everything she thought she knew about herself and the world around them begins to fall apart.
Neither of them understands what is happening to them, or why, and they’re running out of time to figure it out.
An ancient Norse prophesy of destruction has been set into motion, and what destiny has in store for them is bigger than either could have ever imagined.
