Rainbow Snippets – 5/3/17 – Comes A Horseman

Rainbow Snippets is a group who post 6 sentences each week from LTBTQ+ fiction or a book rec. Check out the FB page for more. #RainbowSnippets

This snippet comes from Comes a Horseman, book 3 of my WWII Echoes Rising series, which is being published by DSPP Publications later this year. I’ve gone for something a bit lighter this week as the last few were angsty.

He shuddered. “I still have nightmares about my parachute not opening, and I swear that experience is the cause of all my gray hairs.”

“You don’t have any gray hairs.” Ken rolled his eyes, but had enough sense not to be looking at Liang when he did it. “And no, I don’t want to look for them. Thanks for the offer anyway.”


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

  1. Yikes, I’d say that experience should be good for a lifetime’s worth of nightmares (and a head full of gray hairs)!

    Definitely an experience of which nightmares are made! 🙂


  3. Nice bit of banter between these two…the affection peeks out of the attempt to keep things light.


  4. P.T. Wyant says:

    He should have offered to look for them — and pull them out.


  5. Anne Barwell says:

    LOL. Glad you enjoyed the banter.

    I like the banter and yes that would be a nightmare, the chute not opening.

      Poor Liang has been thrown into a situation way above his comfort levels on pretty much everything. Glad you enjoyed the banter. One of my favourite things about this series has been growing the friendships between the guys in this team.
