Rainbow Snippets – 13/11/16 – Magic’s Muse

I’m in a Hidden Places frame of mind at present so continuing on from last week with another Rainbow Snippet from Magic’s Muse.

“I dream, Cat.” Will looked down. “I’m torn between wanting the dreams and yet not, because I know they’re not real. Waking up from them is difficult.” It was impossible to miss the pain in his voice. Regret, longing, and sadness washed over Cathal like a wave, flowing unchecked for a long moment before ebbing again as Will fought to control his emotions.


About Anne Barwell

Anne Barwell lives in Wellington, New Zealand. She shares her home with two cats who are convinced that the house is run to suit them; this is an ongoing “discussion,” and to date it appears as though the cats may be winning. In 2008 she completed her conjoint BA in English Literature and Music/Bachelor of Teaching. She has worked as a music teacher and a primary school teacher, and now works in a library. She is a member of the Upper Hutt Science Fiction Club and plays violin for Hutt Valley Orchestra. She is an avid reader across a wide range of genres and a watcher of far too many TV series and movies, although it can be argued that there is no such thing as “too many.” These, of course, are best enjoyed with a decent cup of tea and further the continuing argument that the concept of “spare time” is really just a myth. She also hosts other authors, reviews for the GLBTQ Historical Site “Our Story” and Top2Bottom Reviews, and writes monthly blog posts for Authors Speak and Love Bytes. Anne’s books have received honorable mentions four times and reached the finals three times in the Rainbow Awards. She has also been nominated twice in the Goodreads M/M Romance Reader’s Choice Awards—once for Best Fantasy and once for Best Historical. Anne can be found at https://annebarwell.wordpress.com
