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 Tenant of Wildfell Hall

The Tenant of Wildfell Hall - Anne Brontë I enjoyed Tenant of Wildfell Hall much more than Agnes Grey. It had far more depth, and there's no doubt that Anne borrowed from real life in her descriptions of her heroine dealing with an alcoholic husband. Anne's experiences with her brother Branwell's alcoholism would have provided ideal source material. It still seems a little primmer than her sisters' work, despite its heavy subject matter, but it's a good read.
