Like short stories? Right now, and for the next forty-eight hours, the first book I wrote, ’25 Stories of Life and Love in Australia’, is free to download on Amazon Kindle.
’25 Stories of Life and Love in Australia’ is a collection of short stories and vignettes, set in modern-day Australia. The picturesque settings within which these very distinctively Australian vignettes of love and loss and change play out include parks, beaches and homes, all described in a visually evocative way. While tales of love and romance do feature very prominently, there are also human-interest tales about people from diverse walks of life, with characters ranging in age from early childhood to senior citizenship. The stories are heartwarming (and often poignant), and they are written in an easy-to-read, flowing style that draws the reader in. The pages turn themselves.

‘Uncertain Love’ by Margaret Lynette Sharp
Twenty-one-year-old Amanda finds herself falling in love with Kevin, a self-assured guy from the right side of town. Doubts about his fidelity, though, start to creep in when unexpected circumstances arise. And Amanda fears her self-esteem may take a further nosedive when, finally, she meets Kevin’s well-to-do and notoriously snobbish family. Has fate prepared a different path for her, that she may ultimately tread hand-in-hand with someone else?
Starting in just a few hours, this novella will be free to download on Amazon Kindle for five days only!

I’m so glad that these have become popular! In many of our local streets, these wonderful flowers are to be seen. Several well-advanced trees are growing in nearby nature strips. And don’t the Rainbow Lorikeets love them!
It’s not uncommon to discover Australia’s Laughing Kookaburras looking for whatever they can find that picnickers have left behind – or even for these bold birds to snatch a piece of someone’s lunch.
But recently I saw one, that was about to fly off with a piece of orange rind in its beak. Maybe it was health-conscious… How much better was this than, say, half a burned sausage?
Here in Sydney, Australia, it’s wisteria time! Though it isn’t as easy to spot as it was years ago, there are still houses around that feature it in their gardens. Our home is old – being built almost one hundred years ago, and the wisteria in our yard might well have been planted way back then. It has definitely graced our springtime for over half a century. I remember it in flower as a small child.
While its flowers are delightful, the perfume that accompanies them is also worthwhile.
