— Appears in: Queensland Review , May vol. 8 no. 1 2001; (p. 31-54)
Examines the response of white women writers to the conditions of living and writing in Queensland before the social and cultural changes set in train by the Second World War. The article covers a range of women writers, with particular attention to Foott and Praed. Sees the principal themes pre-occupying these authors as "the colonial experience ... including the difficulty of finding a literary voice in a new land, a conflicted sense of place, the linking of masculinity with violence, and the promotion of racial purity."

— Appears in: Australian Literary Studies , May vol. 10 no. 1 1981; (p. 48-56) Who Is She? 1983; (p. 26-36)
Sharkey argues that romance enabled Praed to present the colonial experience from a metropolitan point of view and intelligibly relate the circumstances of women in fronteir society to a European audience. This is achieved by employing a love-theory that declares, in Platonic terms, that for each person there is one who is their perfect match.
