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.

Shades of Mercy (Maine Chronicle, #1)

Shades of Mercy (Maine Chronicle, #1) - Anita Lustrea, Caryn Rivadeneira This book was slow to start with. The first couple of chapters were made up mostly of introductory material, and it consisted of more 'telling' than 'showing', and this made it difficult for the story to hold my interest. However, I persevered, and in the end, the story was a good one and enjoyable, although I felt sometimes there was too much time spent explaining life on the farm, and occasionally these passages were in the middle of plot points, so I found them distracting. But the resolution was one I enjoyed and felt it was well done.
