I second that.

In fact, though, you need not place your own style file "in the same
folder as your working document" as long as you give the path.

Here, for instance is the kind of preamble I use:

\documentclass[11pt]{book}
\usepackage{../StyleSheets/Preamble}
\usepackage{../StyleSheets/GraphicsPaths}

where the folder StylSheets is parallel to the folder in which the
document itself is.
