After twenty years developing effective brand stories for businesses and entrepreneurs, I am inspired to model the art of storytelling as our most powerful and important tool for defining and creating fulfilling lives.

“Last night I was mesmerized by babe effect. I read until it was time to go to bed, laid down, then wide awake, rose and finished it. I can't express my reaction without tears. You have bravely shared an intensely personal, yet universal transformation. I completely connect with it—the search for soul and satisfaction and health. I'll wager that the mark of your great and honest writing is that every reader will identify with it just as deeply. It sure makes me examine my own entrapments, and question when I am going to start living authentically. What a great challenge to throw down!"

Materials on Hand

"Written as a poem a day the last year of her mother’s life, Materials on Hand shines a light on the fine line between heartache and beauty. A spiritual journey set against the backdrop of dementia, the book serves as a roadmap to transcendence. Piercingly honest and self aware, Page Nolker distills the complex intricacies of caregiving into simple revelations about what it means to be human―and the transforming power of unconditional love. Written with humor and compassion in a voice anyone can relate to, Materials on Hand reminds us that the potential for joy exists even in the darkest sorrow." Available on Amazon

“Every poem―a simple, beautiful truth.”

“Page has disclosed not only beauty, but a self awareness that most would be afraid to discover. Her strength and wisdom are second to none.”

“Page has brought me to tears, laughter and back to tears. And always with such love. Materials on Hand is a treasure of truth, of revelation, of life.”

“Brave. Full of honesty and grace.”

“Intense. Funny. Sad. ... But always, always healing.”

“Materials on Hand brought me to my knees. Authentic and raw. The message is overwhelming clear: Love.”

Love Leaves: The Art of Letting Go

You were my giving tree; the apple of my eye.

As promised at the conclusion of Materials on Hand, I begin the sequel. A stack of unopened journals on my desk waiting to be read. Though I once imagined writing and publishing a completed tale, I am choosing instead to share the last year of my father’s life, and my journey as his caregiver, the same way I wrote my mother’s―one day at a time. This, I’ve come to realize, is the only way to survive grief―one day at a time. My father died of mesothelioma 14 months after my mother’s death. Love Leaves: The Art of Letting Go is to be another love story; another poetic tale of compassionate caregiving. It opens with my mother’s death.
