Born in Sydney, Australia, in the mid 1950's, Margaret Sharp is the daughter of the late Frederick and Edna Willis. She has one sister, Helen. Margaret spent her early years living in an inner suburb of Sydney, at the age of ten, moving to a leafy outer suburb, well away from the hectic pace of her childhood environment. Considered to be a very talented student, she achieved excellent results in subjects as diverse as modern history, English, economics and mathematics. As a young woman, she studied Short Story writing and Freelance journalism over a period of five years, achieving, in the estimation of her teachers, a high degree of proficiency. She is keenly interested in swimming, having competed at club level for the past twenty-nine years, and is still competing with success. Another interest of hers is music, both as a participant and a listener. She plays both piano and piano-accordian, and likes both classical and popular pieces. She also enjoys painting in watercolour, and particularly likes to portray birds. She is married to Ronald Sharp B.E.M., the builder of the Grand Organ in the Sydney Opera House concert hall. He has greatly assisted her in the design and setup of her books. She has had letters and articles published, and recently published another collection of Short Stories, '25 Stories of Life and Love in Australia' which has been described as a book that is hard to put down.
