My travels and experience in life have had a profound effect on my writing and my art.In each book I strive to connect on a personal level with the reader, the same way I would if we met personally. My art has now evolved into using abstract as a way of communicating emotions.
'5 Pillars of the Gypsy' is my latest release which combines art and verse and stands as a mixture of spiritualism and emotion.Each poem tells a story. Each story is meant to awaken the inner you and add meaning to life events.
Over the past three years I have managed two trips with Habitat for Humanity - Global Village; one to Tajikistan and one to Jordan. Each of these trips included short stops in Istanbul which quickly became my favourite city to visit and explore. As a result I had the privilege of learning about Islam and its parallels with Christianity along with cultural customs.
As a volunteer with Literacy Unlimited and Friends for Mental Health, I support and encourage education as a way to break barriers too, through knowledge and understanding. The adventurous laid back spirit in me has enabled me to become very adaptable to a variety of enjoyable experiences and delight in every one of them. My biggest pleasures are my biggest motivators.
I am currently working on my 5th book which will follow along the lines of '5 Pillars of the Gypsy' as I feel I have found my true voice.

I LOVE this book even though I thought I didn't like poetry. Les just blows me away with how her words create visions and stories that describe my feelings and growth over time. Each story/poem speaks to something in my life. I feel like I'm on the same journey and have travel some of the same roads.
I'm reading The Healing at a friend's wedding on Sept. 7, 2012.
