Interview with a werewolf…

Character interview of Clay from Hope(less): Book One of the Judgement of the Six, by author Melissa Haag

A knock sounds at the door. Melissa scrambles to tuck the latest novel she’s reading under a sofa cushion and then runs to answer the door. The afternoon interviewee has arrived. Melissa peeks out the door and finds a scruffy looking man staring back. His longish hair partially covers his eyes and a beard covers his face. Despite his dubious appearance, she opens the door with a smile.

Melissa: Hi! Come on in. **steps aside and motions Clay in.**

Clay nods in greeting and enters.

Melissa: Please have a seat. **motions Clay to sit and takes a seat across from him in her slightly dusty living room.**

Melissa: I was so excited you agreed to this interview. After finishing Hope(less), I have so many questions for you. Can I get you anything to drink before we start?

Clay declines with a shake of his head.

Melissa: ** leans back into her chair and picks up a pad of paper to take notes.** Tell me, what did you think of Gabby when you first saw her?

Clay smiles slightly. His whisker’s twitch.

Clay: Pretty.

Melissa waits for a few seconds for Clay to say more, clears her throat, and then moves on when he remains quiet.

Melissa: What exactly happened that night you brought her back to the compound? I’m really curious about the leaves in her hair.

Clay shifts uncomfortably and shrugs.

Clay: Distraction.

Melissa: **blinks at his taciturn response.** Let’s talk about your favorite color. Why pink?

Clay: **grins wickedly and shrugs.** Bikini.

Melissa: Oh? **leans forward anticipating more detail, but is left waiting. Stifling a groan of frustration, moves on to the next question.** What made you decide to get a job from Dale?

Clay: **gives a full grin, showing teeth. His eyes crinkle at the corners.** Opportunity.

Melissa: **the sexy smile evokes memories of several scenes from Hope(less). Melissa shakes herself, and barely avoids sighing in a dreamy fashion.** What did you think of Gabby’s attempts to get rid of you?

Clay: **a quick laugh escapes him.** Expected.

Melissa: **looks down at the blank note paper and scowls briefly before returning her focus to Clay.** I don’t want to give anything away for anyone who hasn’t read Hope(less), but tell me… how do you feel about how the book ended?

Clay: **the heart-melting smile returns.** Satisfied.

Melissa: **desperate for something to put to paper asks a simple yes or no question.** Have you shaved for Gabby yet?

Clay shrugs enigmatically.

Melissa: **quickly asks the next question.** Do you have any insight what will happen in the next installment of the series?

Clay shakes his head.

Melissa: Will we learn anything more about Gabby’s abilities?

Clay shrugs.

Melissa: **tries a different approach.** Now that Hope(less) is finished, what do you plan to do?

Clay: Wait.

Melissa: **frustration creeps into the next question.** We can expect to see you again, then?

Clay shrugs enigmatically.

Melissa: **makes a show of looking at her watch.** Well, look at the time! **Stands and extends hand.** I appreciate your time and your succinct answers. **leads Clay to the door.**

Clay nods and exits.

Melissa returns to the couch, digs out her Novel where the men actually speak in complete sentences, and escapes into another world.

Our world is being judged and even they remain unaware.

Michelle, another young woman with an unexplainable gift, finds herself surrounded by the previously undiscovered werewolf society. Kept prisoner for the predictions that torment her, she meekly follows orders waiting for her opportunity to run. When her stepfather dies, she takes a chance and escapes.

After witnessing Blake, her captor, grow canines, she knows he will do anything to find her. She needs a place to hide and someone to listen to her predictions so her head doesn’t explode, but knows there’s nowhere she can hide forever, and no one who can protect her… unless she can find someone just like him.

Part of the fur wearing faction wants to use her, another part strives to keep her safe. The second book of the Judgement of the Six series will raise more questions about the purpose of these gifted few and Michelle will need to fight for answers. Will what she discovers be enough to help her keep those she loves safe from an emerging evil?

Book Excerpt:

“What are you thinking about?” Emmitt asked, his thumb trailing softly across my cheek as I became aware of the present.

My heart skipped a beat at the close contact and I struggled to breathe.

“Nothing,” I whispered.

He dropped his hand, but stayed close, his eyes searching mine. “We all have our secrets, Michelle.”

I wanted to snort in disbelief. What secret did Emmitt have that could possible rival the laundry basket of secrets I carried?

He continued to watch me and then frowned slightly. “I want to show you something,” he said slowly as if just making up his mind. “My secret.” He moved half a step back, giving himself room to show me his forearm. “But I don’t want it to freak you out. I just want you to see you can share your secrets with me. I want you to be happy here.”

I doubted it, but dutifully looked at his arms. At first, I thought I needed to find a tiny hidden tattoo or something. As my eyes searched, I noticed his arm hair change. It grew longer and thicker. Startled, my gaze flew to his.

“You can make your hair grow?” My gaze flitted to the hair on his head. It didn’t look any longer than it had a moment ago.

“Sort of,” he said lowering his arm. “There’s more.” He pulled back his lips in a parody of a huge smile.

I stared at Emmitt in horror, all my hopes crushed with the single telling revelation of his elongated teeth. Panic bloomed. Clutching the glass in my hand, a growling scream erupted from my throat as I drew back to throw it at him. At the same time, I lifted a knee, clipping his groin. He dropped like a stone before the glass touched him.

Eyes wide, I looked down at his prone form. His eyes closed, he gritted his teeth, canines still exposed. Panting, I tried to make myself move. Run. Run! RUN!!! It echoed in the cavern of my mind until I broke free of my paralysis. Dropping the glass, I sprinted for the door. I cleared the door as glass shattered and he grunted.
