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.

Ender's Game - Orson Scott Card

Fantastic and fascinating story about a young child who is trained to become a commander of an army to save the world from invading aliens. Watching Ender's development from that child into something else is tragic and thought-provoking. So many parallels can be made to so many aspects of our world today and the human race's dehumanisation in a myriad of different areas. I don't think it's possible to read this book only once and be able to understand all that it has to say, so I might have to get stuck back into it fairly soon!
