Australian Short Stories: My Way

27 Oct


What pops into your mind when someone says ‘Australian Short Stories’?

Do you think of the outback: tales of bush-men boiling a billy on a camp-fires? Kelpies and cattle dogs earning their keep by rounding up herds of sheep or cattle? Agricultural scenes: the rugged lifestyle of being a wheat or sugar cane grower?

If these are typical of the depictions you expect to see in my Short Story Collections, you’ll be in for a surprise.

My ‘Life and Love in Australia’ series of four volumes is dominated by tales of romance. Whether set in city or country, they feature a diverse selection of  characters, plots and motivations.

You’ll find music-lovers, party-goers and dancers, as well as quiet, older folk, sometimes  finding romance when they least expect it. You’ll also discover tales of human interest, such as parents’ concerns over their children’s lives, or something quite different like a humorous account of musical performance gone awry.

So, next time you hear the words ‘Australian Short Stories’, why not think of those of Margaret Lynette Sharp?
