What is Rainbow Snippets? It’s a group of LGBT+ authors who post six sentences (or more) from a current WIP, published work or even something they’ve read that they want to rave about. Click in the rainbow to be transported to a place of wonder where you will find tasters of everything from sweet romance, to hot and steamy, to fantasy and sci fi

I’m continuing on with The Runaway. I’m very fond of this book, especially because a dear friend painted the cover image for me and I think it’s absolutely beautiful, just like sweet Ciarrai. By the way that’s pronounced Kee-a-ree

Ciarrai is running away from a past that’s still breathing down his neck. Jack has no past, his memory wiped in the accident that killed his parents. They meet and their lives move forward like stones skimming the surface of the water, dipping into memories that want to surface and those that want to lie buried forever.

This week, we’ll move on to meet Jack who is a completely different kettle of fish. We meet Jack on a stroll around the lake where he is staying in a cabin with his aunt. He’s recovering from the car accident that killed his parents and almost killed him. He has no idea Ciarrai – or Aaron – exist.


He was almost back to his old self…except that he had absolutely no idea who his old self was. His new self had begun the moment he woke up—or was aware he’d woken up— in hospital after the accident. Everything before that was a blank. No, worse than a blank. Blanks were soft, places of nothingness, of peace. The void inside him was anything but peaceful. It was aggressively empty and he’d grown to hate it.
