As an Australian author with a total of five books published, I’ve been asked this question. Which of your books are you most proud?
This is a tough one. It’s akin to asking, “Which is your favourite child?”
I guess you could liken my first four to quadruplets, since they’re four of a kind. Even their names are closely linked. ’25 Stories of Life and Love in Australia’, ‘A Taste of Life and Love in Australia’, ‘The Essence of Life and Love in Australia’, and, you guessed it, ‘Reflections of Life and Love in Australia.’ These volumes are dominated by romances, though some are interspersed with tales of human interest. They’re quite short, averaging just four or five pages, flowing,and easy to comprehend.
My latest creation, ’60 Questions, Insights and Reminiscences’ is currently an ‘only child’, of sorts. Will it remain so? Who knows?
All five volumes are edited by my husband, Ronald Sharp, the creator of the Grand Organ in the Sydney Opera House. His creative influence has touched all these books through his innovative style.
Back to the question.
I’m proud of them all, since within each there are stand-out favourites that show my own characteristic style to best advantage.
But, if pressed for an answer, I’ ll say the last.
Because ’60 Questions, Insights and Reminiscences’ makes me smile!
