I Am Writing – 25/1/21 – Winter Duet


This week’s snippet is from Winter Duet. Almost finished my read through so aiming to format next weekend, as it’s not something I’m going to do on a weekday with limited time before work, and getting home after 7pm.

“The Gestapo are on their way. We’ve been compromised.” Matt shoved the note into his pocket. It wouldn’t do to leave it behind as evidence they’d been warned.

“I can’t rouse Leo,” Kristopher told him. He shook Leo again, and this time Leo opened his eyes, although he didn’t seem very alert. He muttered something under his breath, but was obviously disorientated. They didn’t have time to wait until the morphine wore off.

“We’ll carry him between us.” Matt holstered his gun and ran over to the couch. “The front door is too obvious. We’ll go out the back and hope there’s no one there.”

“We won’t get far with him like this.” Kristopher didn’t think he could carry Leo on his own. If the way ahead wasn’t clear how would they get out?

“It’s better than staying here. I don’t know about you, but I’d prefer to take my chances out there.”

About Anne Barwell

Anne Barwell lives in Wellington, New Zealand. She shares her home with a cat with “tortitude” who is convinced that the house is run to suit her; this is an ongoing “discussion,” and to date, it appears as though Kaylee may be winning. In 2008, Anne completed her conjoint BA in English Literature and Music/Bachelor of Teaching. She has worked as a music teacher, 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 and reviews for other authors, and writes monthly blog posts for Love Bytes. She is the co-founder of the New Zealand Rainbow Romance writers, and a member of RWNZ. Anne’s books have received honorable mentions five times, reached the finals four times—one of which was for best gay book—and been a runner up 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
