Inspiration Import is a company I (Lesley Fletcher) registered many years ago. I re-registered it as a Publishing company in 2009. I have independently published my own 4 books so far under this imprint … aspiring to one day publish other like-minded artists poets and authors. My voice is that of humanity and so I have written my books to encompass emotions and challenges that face everyday people. My focus is on connection and listening and being part of a gentler world.
Each of my books carry full colour illustrations with the exception of ‘5 Pillars of the Gypsy’ which includes my various artwork including monoprints, acrylics, water colours, collages and alternative art. All covers are my artwork also.
These are my books and a review of each. If you click on the title it will lead you to Amazon where you can ‘PEEK INSIDE’ :)
Live! CRYSTAL BALL PERSUASION
Also Available in e-Book format at Smashwords, Amazon Kindle, Kobo, iTunes and all other major online book sellers.
Two women from completely different backgrounds are brought together by a premonition. Each has their own set of questions, quests and bags packed for a journey to unfamiliar lands. They embark on their soul searching adventure and end up discovering the path that was meant to be in a series of luck, serendipity, instinct and intelligence.
The travelling carnival is not the life Gypsy pictured for herself. Since being given her mentor’s gift of a premonition from a very young age, she has had her sights on a life far away from the one she leads.
Standing in her way are two men; one who has been waiting a lifetime for her love and one who depends on her gifts for a living wage.
Trusting the Universe, she throws herself into a new life when she finds the seeker who fits the premonition. She sets out with a new identity and a zest for adventure on her quest for the truth. Her journey leads her to questions she had never thought of asking. Only one thing is set in stone. She will never return to life on the midway again.
Accompanying her on the adventurous escape and leading the way is a woman whose life has been thrown mercilessly into turmoil. Together they conquer goals, soul search and open their bruised and broken hearts as they travel to far off destinations.
Along the way the question arises – will there be enough light at the end of the tunnel to produce lasting happiness, while being so far removed from their former lives?
5 Pillars of the Gypsy A book of art and verse
“I enjoyed this collection of poetry more than any I have read previously. Some of the poems are musical and had an incantatory effect on me.
Leslie has adapted a beautiful style of writing poetry. She uses a bit of the traditional style and a diverse technique of writing.
All of the poems are easily interpreted and many are heartwarming.
I’d like to give you an example from two of my favorites:
With her music
And her memories
Clearly all exposed
Of her gracefulness of movement
From her head right to her toes.
Childish thoughts please stay with me,
With those I will not falter,
Sadness, jealousy and grief,
Just stay inside the water.
I look forward to reading more poetry written by this very talented author.”

All I Want for Christmas is a Wishmas Tree – Focusing on cultural integration for 6-10 yrs
” I read the Wishmas Tree and I love it! I am so amazed by your writing skills. You really get the target audience and write for that level, it’s not easy to switch styles so easily. You must have been a writer in a past life. ”

Prom Girls – a North American Rite of Passage – Follows the last year of high school & ritual 13 yrs+
“Prom girls is not as light and fluffy as you might expect. I like the funny stories and the sad stories equally. One of the stories is written in the language of ‘texting’ as a young man describes his anxieties of asking out a girl.”
Amazon Review by Jean Ann French
A short, hard-hitting, comedic play. Moral decay is alive and not so well in the suburbs as well as urban area neighbourhoods. The uncomfortable feeling of laughing in the face of what is essentially murder and kidnapping propels this relevant comedy/drama. AVAILABLE ON AMAZON and other online book retailers.
