My Journey in Writing

My name is Lynne Stringer and I love writing! Of course, that’s not all I love. I also love reading books, especially ones that take me out of the every day and into a new world. It doesn’t have to be a completely imaginary world, either. Anything with fascinating characters and interesting storylines will do. My first young adult novel, The Heir, was accepted for publication by Wombat Books and released on 1 June 2013. It is the first book in the Verindon trilogy. It’s so exciting to have a real copy of my book in my hands.

Anna and the French Kiss - Stephanie Perkins

This book was incredibly slow at the start, with large amounts of information and a lot of telling rather than showing, but about quarter of the way through it picked up and was really enjoyable. But be warned - there is a large quantity of teenage angst so don't read it if you can't deal with that. It came across as entirely believable as a tale a  teenage American in Paris would tell when sent to a boarding school against her will, and in spite of finding it difficult to become engaged in the story at first, I was most definitely engaged by the end.
