I am quite new to latex, so I hope to find some help here. I am preparing a journal using the book class and need to have the author for each chapter printed in the table of contents and at the top of the page for each chapter. I found a solution here on stackexchange, however I can't get it to display the correct color. On the main table of contents the author follows the color scheme of the chapter title, but in the mini table of contents for each part of the book, the author name doesn't match the color of the chapter and section titles.

I am using someone else's template, so I don't fully understand all the commands. Most of the code below is probably not important in relation to my question, but I tried cleaning it up and then it wouldn't compile.

How do I make the color of the author match the color of the chapter/section titles in the mini table of contents?

    Welcome to TeX SX! It seems you use titletoc to customise your table of contents, which you don't mention. Further, everything seems to be printed in white. As you don't have a code for a coloured background, your table of contents will be invisible… – Bernard May 31 '18 at 23:44
