About Margaret Lynette Sharp and Her Books

Hi,

Here’s some more information about me.

I’m a happily married woman who lives with her husband in a quiet, leafy Sydney suburb. My husband is known around the world in pipe-organ circles since he is the highly respected creator of the Grand Organ in the Concert Hall of the Sydney Opera House. His name is Ronald Sharp.

Many years ago I studied Short Story Writing and Freelance Journalism, both as an external student. I liked writing, and my teachers were very encouraging, but unfortunately, family circumstances intervened and I had to focus on other, more mundane, things.

About a year ago I got the idea that I might, just might, be able to put together a book of romantic short stories. My local newspaper had been keen to publish almost every Letter to the Editor that I submitted, and I had sent in quite a number. Buoyed by this, and at Ron’s encouragement, I set to work.

Ron greeted my work with boundless enthusiasm and support, and was more than excited and enthralled by a number of them. His favourite, I believe, is ‘A Song for Ellie’, which you will find in ‘A Taste of Life and Love in Australia.’ That said, he is, even now, constantly finding new stories in my fourth book (that he is spacing and editing) to praise greatly.

So, I’m trying my hardest to get the books read by others, and hopefully approved. Who knows, one day I may be well known, like my husband. Well, at least I can dream!

    Hello, Margaret! I wanted to stop by and give you a big “THANK YOU” for all your support of my blog. I truly appreciate it, and it doesn’t ever go un-noticed. I work a lot (besides this blog) so I want to thank you. I have to say – you don’t know anyone named John Pearson, do you? I grew up with him and his children, and he travels the world playing the organ pipes (but it’s not my forte, so please forgive me if I’m saying it wrong).

    I appreciate your genuine interest, and your authentic posts. There isn’t much of that out there these days. I appreciate everything you “like” and it means a lot – from one fellow blogger to another – it’s great. Thank you. D

      Thanks for all your support! I appreciate it!
      I’ve asked my husband Ron, the builder of the Grand Organ in the Sydney Opera House, about John Pearson. He doesn’t know him.
      Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

    Your husband might be interested to know that the mighty organ in Winchester Cathedral, UK, broke down last week owing to electrical problems, so no recitals this Bank Holiday Monday!
    What would Samuel Wesley have done? Prayed for its recovery?
