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.

Rebecca (VMC)

Rebecca - Daphne du Maurier, Sally Beauman I saw the 1940 movie before I read the book, and was a little bemused at how implausible was its late plot development. Then I read the book and discovered that they had changed it for the movie. Not surprising, considering the controversial nature of this development. Even today there is a sense of moral ambiguity. Do we support Maxim and his actions or not? This however, made the book more enjoyable to me, as I could not pigeon hole it as easily as I might have otherwise. Well worth reading.
