Guest Blog and Giveaway with Peiri Ann

Here is an Interview with Tracey, one of the characters from Burdened.

Interviewer: Hello.

Tracey: Hi, I'm Tracey, from Burdened. Thanks for having me.

Interviewer: Hi Tracey, thank you for joining us. We will just get right into it. Can you tell us something's about yourself?

Tracey: Youre welcome, and yes, I can. My full name is Tracey Warren; Im eighteen and preparing to graduate from high school. I stay with my mother and my dad but he is always gone. He works and travels back and forth for his job. I love freedom and doing what I want. I love Twinkies and Coke, and hanging out with my best friend Glen. Everything in life was good, well, its still good but in a different way. (She gives me an uncomfortable look)
Interviewer: What do you mean, “In a different way?”
Tracey: Before, me and my friends hung out all the time and partied. You know, like us eighteen year olds are supposed to. But I met this guy, his name is Nathan. He's hot, like…illegally hot, but being with him and his constricted yet amazing personality, I have to deal with his family and his enemies. And they seem to live to make our lives a living hell. Even Glen. (She rolls her eyes, shaking her head)
Interviewer: Can you give me more, on how they make your life a living hell?
Tracey: I cannot, I cant give away too many of our burdens. But I can tell you Nathan is - burdened, and when we first met...I would have never expected the things he told me the first night we talked, after that party. I thought, he was talking stuff, you know, giving me the 'I'm a bad guy' and 'messed up stuff happens in my life everyday' spill. Come to find out. It wasn't a spill, he was serious. But I'm with him, and it's not like I can leave. (She shrugs)
Interviewer: Okay Tracey, can you give us anything else?
Tracey: Yes, oh, my best friend, Glen, mated with Nathans cousin, Scott. They are a headache, (She throws her head back) just me thinking about them makes my head hurt. That's what I meant when I mentioned her earlier. I mean, we still dont know if they should be together and Nathan thinks Glen, is going to suffer in their relationship because of the way Scott treats her - maybe even try to kill herself.
Interviewer: Kill herself! Suffer how? And how does Scott treat her?
Tracey: You are asking a lot of questions.
Interviewer: It's an interview Tracey. I'm supposed to ask a lot of questions. I am only trying to get some more information about you and Burdened for everyone.
Tracey: I cant tell you everything. And I dont want to spoil the lovey - thats sarcasm, mind you - Scott and Glens relationship. Burdened is as its name presents. There are some steamy scenes Nathan I share, that I will not get into details with you. I know you and your questions are going to ask. There is actions and fights that scared the crap out of me. I mean, I’ve seen people who look human do some non-human things, and it freaked – me – out. The unexpected things that happen living the life of an Burdened Sephlem's mate, is what gets me. Seems like all in one week, Nathan and I lived a life and encountered things from a year's worth of time.  
Interviewer: Wow, that sounds interesting and overwhelming. But I assume you will not give me those details of what you encountered.
Tracey: Nope, I can't. Just know, there are a lot of burdens that I encounter. Including, I'm not the same person I once was.
Interviewer: Details Tracey, details!
Tracey: No. (She shakes her head)
Interviewer: Okay, you are killing me here, Tracey. Can you tell us about the author, Peiri Ann?
Tracey: Yes. Of course she's a writer. She takes me off guard, sometimes, with her gory scenes and methods of healing. But you can't help but love her with her humble attitude and ‘tell it like is’ ways. She has a daughter and they both live in Chicago. That's the most of the "person stuff" I know. I think her website is it may have some more info for you.
Interviewer: Thank You. So, you mentioned the name Nathan. Can you tell us about him?
Tracey: Ah, yes. I can talk about Nathan for hours. But I won't, not today. Nathan Newcomb, is his name. He's my mate and my heart beats for him, keeping him alive. I die - he dies. Crazy right!? He is the hardest person on earth to read and you won't know what's going in with him, unless he chooses to tell you. I stated before, he's really attractive, and everything else about him…you will have to find out from Burdened. You're making me miss him.
Interviewer: Okay can you-
Tracey: Wait, (she puts up her finger) Nathan is calling me. He does this thing where he doesn’tt have to be around for me to hear him. Its annoying. I’ll talk to you later (she stands). Thanks for the interview, thank you Majanka for the spot. It was fun. (She walks to the door, waving)
Interviewer: Okay Tracey, well, thank you for joining me.  And…she gone, and I’m talking to myself.

Tracey Warren has everything an eighteen year old girl should. She lives a life of expectancies; go to school, please her parents, party with friends, and revel in life as a young adult.

In being enthralled by his overwhelming existence, Tracey neglects his promise of death (which never falls short of Nathan) and in ignoring his guarantee, she chooses to give into love over sanity and risks her life for the opportunity of being with him.

Nathan, knowing the risks gives into this want to have Tracey presuming it may be better to jeopardize their possible ending, than to allow her to endure the pain of his devoid.

We walk out of the house to the backyard, and over to a gazebo that sits off to the side, equal distance from the house and the fence. There are cushioned benches and a beautiful water fountain surrounded by lilies. It’s dimly lit and the rest of the light comes from the remainder of the setting sun.
“I’m sorry about him, Tracey.” He sits down, pulling me to sit across him.
“No, it’s okay. There’s something off about him though. I know you know him better than I do—him being your dad and all. But there is something about him that doesn’t sit well with me. Why all the questions all of a sudden? Just the other day he was the least bit interested in us.”
“He’s an ass. That is how he is. He is one way one day and a different way the next. Fortunately, you were not able to hear what he was really saying—only what came out of his mouth.”
“And what was that?” I’m curious.
“‘This isn’t about you. This is about Nathan.’” He points to himself.
I tense, feeling a slight discomfort. That’s what the Nathan-look-alike said to me the other night, and in that same tone. “That sounds familiar.”
“How so?”
“You said that to me the day you tricked me.”
“That wasn’t me, again, and what do you mean?”
“That exact same tone, those words. When the guy—” I can’t recall his name. “—cut me, that’s what he said.” My hands start getting cold.
Nathan thinks for a moment, or maybe looks in my head. I sit quiet until he says something. “We have today. I’ll worry about it tomorrow,” he responds, ten minutes later.
I smile at him. Although, that really doesn’t give me much for whatever conclusion he came up with, or if he came up with a conclusion. We sit in silence. I try to wrap my head around Nathan’s father and his mixed personalities.
“What is he going to try to talk to us about?” I ask.
“He has no plans of talking with us. Rather, I have no intentions of speaking with him—not with you in the room anyway.”
“Why not with me in the room?” The distant Nathan is back.
“I would say things to him, and perform in a way, that I don’t want you to see.”
“And what, by you doing so, will make me think differently of you?”
“That’s not what I’m saying.”
“So what are you saying?”
“I have no respect for my father. I don’t care about hurting his feelings—if he had any. I also don’t use control when I deal with him.” He looks towards the yard.
“What are you saying?” I probe.
“Tracey, this is not a conversation I’m ready to have right now.”
“Why do you hold things back from me?”
“My life is difficult. My relationship with my father is not like others. How would it sound to you if I said I want to kill my father, and every time I try, the only thing that saves him is my mother? That I don’t mind losing control around him, in hopes that I would murder him—with no doubts or regrets.” He looks at me with no hurt in his eyes about his feelings.
“But if you murder your father, wouldn’t you kill your mother as well?”
“No, she will remain alive, but she will be miserable and out of character.”
“Wait, I’m confused. I thought one could not live without the other?”
“The female can live without the male, but not the other way around. Remember, your heart beats in replacement of mine. So if I die, your heart will still beat, but if you die, that’s it for the both of us.” That’s some crazy shit. “But if I’m hurt, you can always heal me, and I you. You may also be able to feel my hurt now.”

About the Author:

A love for reading transpired into an admiration for writing at a young age for Peiri Ann. Starting off in writing poetry and short stories she indulged in the possibilities of creating new worlds and lives to live within them opening a window of unanticipated possibilities. In high school a pin and notebook never left her grasps and in college the pin was replaced by a keyboard and the notebook replaced by a computer screen. She holds a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology and certified in business management.

When Peiri Ann is not writing, reading, doing homework, or working in the downtown of Chicago she enjoys spending time with her little girl, watching action flicks, and spooning peanut butter from the jar as a midnight snack.
