Lesley Fisher, Data Entry Clerk from Minnedosa, MB has achieved a huge accomplishment in publishing her book titled “Object of Balance”. BJ Graham, Laser Operator, also from Minnedosa, MB illustrated the book.
Lesley’s inspiration for the book came from her nieces and nephews, as well as her children. An aunt to 15 nieces and nephews, and a great aunt to 20 nieces and nephews Lesley had no shortage of inspiration to draw from in order to develop the characters in the book.
“I am very proud of myself. It was something I didn’t think would ever happen in my lifetime, so when I did finally get it done I felt great…” – Lesley fisher
Object of Balance is a fantasy book about nine little fairies who find themselves embarking on a great quest through hostile lands to save their world, Andel.
It is a race against time, they must find one of the Objects the great wizards were using to keep everyone in their world safe, it has been stolen from the wizards and it must be found and brought back before it is too late. For what the creature that stole the Object didn’t know was that the Object was keeping something else even more evil back. Without the object their world will become riddled with all the storms the elements can throw at them.
It is not all bad; the fairies do find that through their travels they meet many new creatures who become their friends and allies. Well, with the fate of the world in the balance wouldn’t you be willing to help?
When the wizards told the fairies they had to go and get the Object back, they were shocked. How could nine little fairies possibly do this? The Object itself was bigger than all of them put together! The wizards told them they had to, there was no choice, the wizards could not go as they had to stay and hold the other evil at bay until the Object was put back into its place. Still the fairies worried but did as they were told. They would find a way!
The Object of Balance is a warm and wonderful tale full to the brim with many different characters that Lesley hopes everyone of all ages will love. There are ferocious dragons, a giant as tall as a mountain, ogres, witches and trolls, and so many others. It is family oriented, and it has many lessons to be learned.
