I Am Writing – 17/10/21 – Double Exposure

From Double Exposure:
“Rupert has a habit of going to ground as soon as there’s any hint of trouble. It’s how he’s survived so long.” Simon frowned. “The fact he’s not here doesn’t bode well for the seriousness of this situation. Have a look on the shelves. See if there are any books that catch your eye. He knew we were coming to Wellington so might have left a message.”

Most of the books were old, and well worn. Ben picked up a copy of Tarzan of the Apes and leafed through it. His eyes widened when he saw the inscription. “This is a signed first edition.”

“Most of them are. Rupert collects them,” Simon said absently. “He’s a terrible name dropper too. It’s quite tiresome after a while.”

“So all these Shakespeare plays are—”

“Signed first editions. Yes. Rupert and Will were friends at one point. Or at least that’s the story he tells.”

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
