So with ‘Green Eyed and Black Tempered’ submitted I’ve turned my attention to a new WIP. And what better way to start than to share a few lines with the fabulous Rainbow Snippets FB group.
The modern day Earl of Crofton is Ben, and in this next instalment he is hiring a historian for the hall and expecting a film crew from the Secret History TV series who will be exploring some of the Redbourn family secrets.
Here’s part of Dara’s job interview with Ben:
“Madeline is singing your praises more loudly that my sister’s cries of despair when the wine bottle is empty, and you’ve not come in here and acted like a complete and utter arse. So on balance the job’s yours if you want it.”
As far as Dara was concerned, it wasn’t that simple. “Here’s the thing: What’s the actual job?”
Ben snorted. “Official historian to Crofton Hall, of course. I don’t have a job description per se, but I do have an four hundred year old family archive that needs desperately organizing, a trunk full of old letters that might make you weep from a professional point of view, and a rather suspect casket in the family crypt.”
