It’s taken a while, but finally it’s happened.
My fourth title, ‘Reflections of Life and Love in Australia’ is now available on Kindle.
Around the world, readers can now have fast, inexpensive access to this, and all my other titles.
‘Reflections…..’ is the fourth and final title in my ‘Life and Love in Australia’ series, which includes the well-reviewed second book, ‘A Taste of Life and Love in Australia’.
All titles in these series are vignettes and Short Stories of Australian relationships, with an emphasis on affairs of the heart. Written from varying perspectives, taken as a whole represent a highly readable variety of engaging tales.
It’s with great pleasure that I announce the publication of my seventh title: ‘Encore’: a collection of vignettes and Short Stories.
Many months in the pipeline, it has finally emerged: a brand new ‘baby’, hopefully full of promise.
As its name suggests, ‘Encore’ is a celebration of what has come before it: uplifting stories of love, romance, and life. Certainly, within its pages there are echoes of its stablemates, both in terms of themes and diversity of characters. In common with all the other volumes, it’s edited by my husband, the organ-builder best known for his massive creation in the Sydney Opera House Concert Hall: Ronald Sharp.
Of its twenty-five stories, my particular favourite is ‘To The Beautiful Brigitte’: a story of a relationship fostered by the writing of love-letters in that most romantic of languages, French. There is a twist to this tale which, if revealed at present, would tend to spoil the enjoyment of its readers: so I’ll leave it for your discovery.
If this is your genre, and you like to support Australian writers, then why not check out this brand new release? It will be on sale soon, both as a Kindle edition and in paperback through Amazon.
It’s a toss up in my mind: whether my personal favourite literary effort of mine is ‘A Taste of Life and Love in Australia’ or ‘Long and Short Australian Stories’.
Currently, the latter is outstripping the former in the Amazon ranking, yet, by virtue of its review numbers and verdicts, ‘A Taste…’ wins, hands down.
My husband and editor Ronald Sharp B.E.M. (my editor) is well known for his musicality, as evidenced by his creation of the Grand Organ in the Sydney Opera House Concert Hall, the musically exalted organ at Knox Grammar, and others. He seems to like both volumes immensely, and I often catch him reading (and obviously being enthralled by) their vignettes and Short Stories.
Do you like romantic tales? Human interest stories? Easy to read literature? Why not check out ‘Long and Short Australian Stories’, at least? If you like the sample pages, then you’ll be pleased to know that there are already four other collections published, and available through Amazon.

These last several weeks, I’ve had a Q&A on the social reading site known as Goodreads, about my latest publication: a book entitled ‘Long and Short Australian Stories’. It’s edited by my husband, the creator of the Sydney Opera House Grand Organ: Ronald Sharp.
‘Long and Short Australian Stories’ is a collection of mixed length stories and vignettes of romance and human interest, set in present-day Australia. Although serious in tone, nevertheless the scenarios lend themselves to uplifting outcomes.
A Goodreads member named Mark has participated in the Q&A ; announcing recently that he had purchased it as an e-book.
Clearly, he enjoyed it, since just this evening I found that he had posted a review both precise and concise on the book’s Goodreads page. He rated it 5 stars.
I’m overjoyed that it’s off to such a good start!
