For the record, this interview was done about half way through the book Guardian Unforgiven. Page was hard to get ahold of, but I was able to negotiate an interview. Though I had to… agree to certain rules.
Before I start I have to say Page is an intriguing character, a strong warrior type but only if you don’t know her. Once she lets you get to see who she is, you understand that she is more of a free spirt with a gentle touch. I am really surprised that she had agreed to this, under the circumstances.
Page walked in the room and as always, she is stunning. You can’t help but notice her full jet black wavy hair, melding into her shoulders, her seductive eyes, wide then fading into a soft point, a deep blue color reminiscent of a wolf looking through you rather than at you. I could see the faint edge of a tattoo on her neck just under her left ear partially covered by her black leather jacket she was wearing, and a nose ring that I hadn’t noticed before. Her athletic body was more Marilyn Monroe as she gracefully entered the tall metal building.
NB; Hi Page how are you?
Page: I guess doing well as expected. Why are we doing this?
(I was expecting a little sarcastic tone but not such short answers)
NB: Ah… Page, I’m just trying to catch up, you know… help people get to know you a little.
Page: People, don’t need to get to know me.
(She sat up in her chair leaned forward placing her elbows on her knees, looked over at me with cunning eye’s)
Page: Nollen, you know exactly why. We’re wasting time.
NB: Ok, what about your Tattoo’s, how did you get into doing Tat’s?
(she sits back starting to relax)
Page: I’ve always saw images in my head, after I got a little older I started getting impressions when I would meet someone. Not everyone… just certain people, strangers. I would then go home and draw what I saw on paper.
It wasn’t until after I graduated college before I started doing tattoo’s.
NB: What does the Tattoo on your neck say, it looks like it says ‘Unforgiven’ can you tell me a little about that?
Page: That’s none of your business
NB: Why are you so short today Page? Is it the Werewolf thing?
(Her head lowers and slightly turns as her eyes stare directly into mine. Her voice changed as well, it was sultry but direct.)
Page: Nollen, you know there is no such thing as werewolves. Where do you come up with these things?
NB: Look Page, I agreed to all your terms here. I don’t even know where the hell we are. Why are you being so difficult?
(Getting up, she walks over to me and stand there looking, staring. Page wasn’t intimidating though her eyes were predatory. It was a stance of… I had the sense she was protecting something or someone.)
Page: Look, there is a lot of things going on right now. I really don’t have the time or the energy to deal with this. Interview Over!
(Page turns, starts walking to the large metal sliding doors of the farm building we had agreed to meet at. Just before she stepped to the light from the sun shadowing her face through the open entry, I asked)
NB: Is it Mark?
(She stopped, still facing the doors and only turning her head to the side)
Page: I only agreed to do this interview because it was you. Mark is special to me… he is the only one who ever made me… Feel, again. Leave him alone.

“… Warmed by the fire but still soaked from the rain. I feel her fingernails gently scratch my back, starting from my right scapula, diagonally down to my doused jeans. The tingling pain released unknown desire. As her hands moved, placing them on my shoulders, she stepped closer to me. The moment her body touched mine, her feel was different than before. Warmer, delicate but commanding.”
Family secrets are hard to hide, sometimes they claw their way out.
The werewolf, most believe to be folklore or legend. For centuries, the existence of werewolves were kept secret and guarded by a warrior class of lycan descended from a fierce ancient line known as the Guardians. These Guardians, sworn to uphold the peace between the wolf and humans. But, some werewolves not satisfied with living in secrecy start lashing out, hunting and killing all with the ancient gene to push humanity into extinction.
Now, only a few descendants are left with the cursed bloodline, some don’t even know they have it…
