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.

Breakaway Creek

Breakaway Creek - Heather Garside I enjoyed Breakaway Creek, and I don't usually enjoy novels that skip between two different time zones. This one, however, pulled it off successfully, maybe because it spent considerable time in each zone between crossovers and didn't cross over in the middle of an important plot development, which really annoys me. Both tales were told well and the writing styles were engaging. I liked the time I spent in both time periods at Breakaway Creek and there was a good amount of detail without it being overdone. I'd recommend it for anyone looking for a contemporary/historical Aussie novel.
