I Am Writing – 15/3/21 – Comes a Horseman

Still working through Comes a Horseman, but now on my final read through before sending to my editor!

“We are not working together, Fräulein.” Karl was wasting his time reminding her of something he considered a fact, but perhaps she could be useful.

“I’m wounded.” Margarete looked more thoughtful than hurt. “I do have some contacts in France, Herr Holm. I have waited a long time for you to honour my request, so I’ve decided to offer my services.”

“I have not forgotten your request.” Her repeated reminder of it grated on him. Frankly he did not care whether she was present or not when Kristopher Lehrer was interrogated as long as she did not interfere. She had known Lehrer for quite some time, and their families had moved in the same social circles. Although the information she’d given them about Lehrer’s musical background had already proved useful, he’d still managed to slip through their fingers.

“Oh good.” Margarete tapped one perfectly manicured fingernail against the armrest of her chair. “I will make enquiries. It will be lovely to get out of Germany for a while. It’s been so long since I’ve done any travelling, and I hear France is quite beautiful this time of year.”

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
