I Am Writing – 22/3/21 – Comes a Horseman

Still working on Comes a Horseman. I need more hours in the day!

“We’ve been in farmland before, but this…” Kristopher fought to keep the wistfulness from his voice. He needed to get used to living here and put any longing for Germany behind him. He’d known that before they crossed the Rhine but hadn’t expected the finality of leaving his country to hit so hard. “France is my home now. Once this is over, I want to build a new life here, with you. I can’t go back to being who I was.”

“You’ve changed a lot since we met, but you’re still the man I fell in love with. Don’t put all of that aside. This is who I am—a French farmer. So much over the past year has been a lie. I’m tired of slipping into identities that are not my own. Whatever happens now, at least I can be French again.”

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
