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.

Guarding Eden: Champions of Climate Change - Deborah Hart
Reading this book was a little terrifying.
While some people deny climate change, this book makes a compelling case for believing in it. Not only that, but it makes it clear that something must be done now or our planet could suffer extreme consequences within a few decades.
Each of the book's chapters contains the story of an ordinary Australian citizen, all from different walks of life, who have one thing in common - a passion for seeing a 100% change to the use of renewable energies NOW, with no further use of fossil fuels.
That fossil fuels are damaging our planet is something most people acknowledge, but if this book is correct, the situation is much more dire than most of us realise.
While I'm sure there will be alternate arguments to what is presented in this book, I still think it's a valid read and I would like to hear the arguments against what the book details, as I can't imagine them being more compelling. It is extremely convincing and deserves to be taken seriously.
