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.

Shirley

Shirley - Charlotte Brontë, Lucasta Miller, Jessica Cox I found Shirley to be an odd book, mainly because Shirley isn't even introduced for quite a few chapters. While it was still enjoyable, I could almost sense Charlotte's struggles as she tried to change her writing to please the critics who hadn't enjoyed Jane Eyre. It was also likely that her emotional state played a part in this, since all three of her remaining siblings died around the time of writing.
Still, any book by a Bronte deserves a look. No one can deny the talent that all three sisters shared.
