Interview with Lesley Fletcher

What are you working on next?
'5 Pillars of the Gypsy' was an abstract story of a gypsy mind in that the story was told through art and poetry. My next book (project) will tackle a much more honest, harder hitting view of the perpetual suburban 'gypsy'. I have not sorted out all the details as yet but it is bubbling in my mind and notebook. My fascination with gypsies is more about the wandering mind, the urge to travel and the love of music and dance. Most people, at some time in their lives make a wish to re-start or to get away from their current situation - herein lies the suburban gypsy.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
I am a visual artist so my day is spent planning or creating art pieces. I am also a Freelance Writer focusing on content, health (mental, physical and natural) and welfare articles and blog posts. Lately, in the past year I have dedicated a tremendous amount of time to my website(s) and gathering social contacts within the writers world as well as learning how to market my goods.
Writing a book or two or even three does not guarantee people will read it and it is the same with art. Having great pieces adorning your own wall is not what an artist wants. The sharing of my work is as important as the process.

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.
