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.

Gone with the Wind

Gone with the Wind - Margaret Mitchell This sprawling, epic story is certainly well worth the read, with its entertaining characters who often tread the line between what we would regard as acceptable for a protagonist and what we would not. Scarlett is not always likeable and neither is Rhett. They are, however, engaging characters. The racism element was off-putting for me, but it was true to the era in which it was set, so I could understand it from that angle, however unpleasant it was. Enthralling.
