I Am Writing – 2/1/22 – Double Exposure

Prelude to Love is being proofed, so it’s back to working on Double Exposure, and having fun with Ben and Simon in New Zealand.

“I should expect a proper family inquisition then?” Simon didn’t sound like he was joking.

“I doubt it’s going to be like that,” Ben said although he figured that was exactly what it would be. “I mean how bad can it be? And you’ve had practice at this kind of thing. You’re really good at covering your tracks, for an old guy.”

Simon rolled his eyes. “Far too much practice, although family is different. I don’t like pretending to be—”

Luckily, a sharp rap at the door interrupted whatever he’d been about to say.

“That’s didn’t take long.” Ben had though they’d have to wait at least an hour before anyone turned up.

“He was in the area.” Simon got up to answer the door. “Apparently.” He sniffed the air. “A werewolf. Interesting.”

The man who walked in had dark hair, and eyes, and a runner’s build. His expression was nothing less than suspicious. Nevertheless, he held out his hand once they were inside. “Detective Garrick Frater, Wellington PD. You must be Hawthorne. The council warned me I was meeting a vampire.”

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
