Need a Break? Read a Story!

18 Oct

When the doctor’s not on time, when the housework’s getting you down, when boredom’s setting in: why not read a story?

Short Stories have a lot going for them: they’re quick to read and can involve you in life outside your own immediate sphere. What better way to refresh your mind than to get involved in another’ s fortunes?

Like the idea? Willing and ready to discover a new, female author? Tell your friends: who knows,  maybe you’ll be instrumental in propelling my work to star status.

Interested? Then please read on.

My recently published four volumes of easy to read stories are all set in Australia, and I’d love you to sample them. Just Google Margaret Lynette Sharp, Amazon.com and, with luck you’ll come across the web-sites that feature ‘look inside’.

These books have all been edited by my husband Ronald Sharp, whose skill and innovation as the builder of the Grand Organ in The Concert Hall of the Sydney Opera House is world renowned.

Review: A Taste of Life and Love in Australia

Is your favourite theme love and romance? Do you have just minutes to while away? Do you like real page turners?

If you answered yes to the above, or even if you didn’t, why not consider ‘A Taste of Life and Love in Australia’?

Averaging just four pages each. this volume contains some of my all-time favourites, starting with the first story.

‘The Girl Next Door’ relates a very young man’s struggle to make a first date with the girl of his dreams. Written from the male point of view, it aims to engage  interest from the beginning since Allen, the hero, is sketched as a rather shy but likeable guy: the sort of person for whom you’d go in to bat. Sadly,perhaps, the outcome is not a happy one. But readers, don’t despair! The story is taken up again in ‘A Second Chance’, at book’s end.

Another stand-out story, and Ron’s particular favourite, is ‘A Song For Ellie’, again written from the male point of view. In desperation, a young man resolves to write a song: not just any old song, but a touching, inspiring one, to give to a lovely young singer whom he idolises. How does he fare?

How have people responded to this book? One female reader of mature years tells me she “loves the first story”. Another says she’d often pick it up, intending to read only one tale, and go on to several!

Interested? Then, why not investigate the Amazon web-page which features ‘Look Inside’. If you’re impressed, please spread the word.

Thanks.
