Blogging about Winter Duet

February got a bit hetic, especially towards the end, so figured I’d share all my blogging in one post.

On the 25th I visted Fiona Glass and chatted about Taking the Scenic route in the story. The title of the post not only refers to the book being a road trip across Germany during wartime, but that my characters don’t behave and stick to an outline. I ended up with an extra 10K I hadn’t planned…

You can read that post here.

On the 26th McKenna Dean hosted me in a post about writing an ensemble cast, and language barriers. That post is here.

I’ve also been interviewed about writing – and Shadowboxing – by PageTurner Magazine here

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
