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.

Love and Muddy Puddles

Love and Muddy Puddles - Cecily Anne Paterson This book started off a tad slow. There was a bit too much ‘telling’, rather than ‘showing’ at first, and that meant I found it difficult to engage in it at the start. However, after that the story picked up and I enjoyed it immensely, although I felt that there were sections that included information that wasn’t required. Coco was also difficult to deal with at times as she had a poor attitude for most of the book. Of course, that was part of the story, but I perhaps a little less time spent on it would have worked better.
Having said that, I would certainly like to read more about Coco in the future and see what happens next, and it’s not often that I say that about any book. :-)
