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.

Under the Sassafras

Under the Sassafras - Hattie Mae Although I enjoyed this story generally, there were a few things that spoiled it for me. For a start, it had numerous spelling mistakes and grammatical errors, not to mention strange choices in punctuation. It could certainly have done with an extensive proofread.
Not only that, I found where the book ended annoying. It was a disappointment that, after going through a lot of to-ing and fro-ing, there wasn't a proper resolution to the main thread of the story. The reader is left to assume what happened next, and after sticking with it for the rising of the tension, that made the read a frustrating one.
