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.

A Distant Melody

A Distant Melody - Sarah Sundin I was tempted to give this book four stars for most of it, but I found the ending tried my patience. It looked continually as if the plot was going to be resolved, but it was delayed again and again, presumably to build suspense. While that can be effective when coupled with plot and character developments, in this case it seemed to be for no better reason than to draw out the ending. This left me frustrated, especially since I felt the conclusion was inevitable by then.
