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.

Enjoyable journey

Shadowfell - Juliet Marillier

I enjoyed Shadowfell. I liked the characters and the way the story progressed (most of it, anyway) and although there was a lot of detail, it seemed necessary, until the climax anyway. At that point I felt we could have done without a lot of the detail, especially since much of it was covering old ground. It made the pace slow quite a bit. As the story got into its later stages, there was also a bit of repetition in the action. However, it was still an engaging story and I liked experiencing Neryn's journey alongside her.
