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.

The Rose of Winslow Street

The Rose of Winslow Street - Elizabeth Camden I was going to give this book five stars, but the ending let it down. It felt far too abrupt and slipped into a bit of telling rather than showing. I wanted a bit more conversation and involvement in the resolution.
My only other complaint was how quickly Libby seemed to feel something for Michael. It seemed unusually quick, given their situation. However, the rest of the book was wonderful. It was meticulous and entertaining, with interesting characters and situations that were different from many other novels I've read. It's a good read.
