About this author

Annette Gisby grew up in a small town in Northern Ireland moving to London when she was seventeen. Being a very small town there were no bookshops and a small library. When she’d devoured every book she could get her hands on in the library, she started writing her own stories so she would always have something to read later.

When not writing she enjoys reading, cinema, theatre, walks along deserted beaches or wandering around ruined castles (great places for inspiration!)

She still lives in England with her husband, a collection of porcelain dolls and stuffed penguins and enough books to fill a small library. It’s diminishing gradually since the discovery of ebooks but still has a way to go.

So if I'm stuck and the words just aren't flowing, I have to be away from the computer screen. I go and do something else - maybe go for a walk, listen to some music, do a bit of housework until I get a bit more inspiration. Then, I'll start writing things down in a notebook and the next day, I don't have blank screen to fill, I fill it with the things I'd written the day before and can continue on from there.(less)

Excerpt from The Prince's Guard (Gay & Lesbian)
1 chapters   —   updated Feb 04, 2013 07:44AM
Description: Prince Dashan has been used to getting things his own way, with servants to cater to his every whim. As the crown prince, it is essential that he is protected and he is followed everywhere by his bodyguard, Ryland. Dashan can't even head to a tavern with his friends without Ryland somehow turning up and spoiling his fun. Dashan disguises himself as a peasant one night and sneaks off to the brothel that he's heard rumours about - a brothel that caters for men who like men. The prince finds it difficult to admit to himself what his true desires are - he yearns to submit his will to someone else. And Ryland is just the man to show him what that truly means.

“Her screams, as always, were silent.”
Annette Gisby, Silent Screams

“I’m not a boy!” Dashan retorted hotly. “How dare you speak to me like that!”

“I’ll speak to you any way I see fit. You are sorely lacking in discipline and wouldn’t know danger if it bit you in the arse!” Ryland looked towards the door where Dashan wanted to go. “Do you have any idea what sort of place that is?”

“A brothel?”

Ryland laughed so hard his head fell back. “A brothel, he says. My, my, aren’t you the innocent? It is a brothel, but a certain type of one. The men who frequent it are known to have very particular tastes.”

“What sort of tastes?” Dashan was curious now. Did Ryland know it was a brothel for men who wanted men? And how did he know? Did he use this place too?

Ryland shook his head. “That’s not something the king would appreciate me telling his son.”

“Show me then. I demand that you show me. That’s an order.”
Annette Gisby, The Prince's Guard

“I have a dark and dreadful secret. I write poetry... I believe poetry is a primal impulse within all of us. I believe we are all capable of it and furthermore that a small, often ignored corner of us positively yearns to try it.”
