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.

Above & Below: A 25th Anniversary Beauty and the Beast Companion - Edward Gross

I found this book a mixed bag. The book's formatting gives me the impression it's self-published. There are quite a few errors and some pages with monstrously long paragraphs. However, the information in its pages was still well worth the read. Given that I haven't watched an episode of Beauty and the Beast for many years, it was quite a shock to realise that George RR Martin wrote a number of the episodes! Given how violent some of his were, perhaps it's not all that surprising.
It was a nice reflection on a show that could have been so much more if the network had believed that true love was all that was necessary to sell a show.
