I’m starting a new project, one that needs to be completed by the late fall. I’ve joined a group of very talented authors who are writing about the Knights of the Black Order, a paranormal action/suspense/MM romance medieval-inspired series created by Thianna D. Durstan, which will be published by Dreamspinner Press. Each knight of the Order has a story to tell, and this is the start of William’s story, a young serf in Normandy….
He lay panting beneath the brambles and thorns, the sweat and blood dripping from his over-heated skin.
“Da?” he whimpered.
“William?” His step-mother’s whisper startled him. The children in their hiding place began to cry.
“Hush, mama!” he whispered as loud as he dared. “Keep the little ones quiet.”
The rattle of a horse’s tack, the soft, almost surreptitious clink of chain mail reached William’s ears a moment after the last child had fallen silent behind him with nary a hiccup to betray them. He peered out from among the thick brambles and branches.
