Rainbow Snippets – 11/2/18 – A Knight to Remember

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

My snippet this week is from A Knight to Remember which is book 2 from my Dragons of Astria series. I’m planning to write and 2nd and final book in the series later this year.

“Who’s there?” A figure leading a horse stepped out of the other side of the clearing, pushing the hood of a brown rough-spun cloak from his face to reveal dark-blue eyes and a grim expression. The man was slightly taller than Denys, standing at about six foot, but appeared to be about the same age. He drew his sword and eyed Denys warily.

Although he was dressed as a peasant, the way in which he held himself suggested he was anything but. There was an air of confidence about him, almost arrogance.


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. Ah, I suspect his demeanor will prove to be more accurate than his appearance in telling about this guy. 🙂


  2. Compelling description!
