Lacey–I’m so sorry to hear about your daughter Austin’s death. I’m glad my books were important to her. And, just so you know, Figlietta sounds like a wonderful title or princess of fairy name.

Kaeden--Thank you!

Alia--I had a great time at Ridgeway. I make lists to help me come up with ideas. And, usually, I end chapters right after something terrible has happened.

Cynthia--Oh, my! I'm so glad ELLA helped you through that rough patch and hope you're fine now.

Marissa--Thanks for letting me know!

Carissa--I'm honored you're using FAIREST for your project. I did look at fashion history books when I described the outfits Aza and Ivi wore.

Hi,
I'm doing a school project using your book Fairest. I have to do a prezi and I was wondering if you have any illustrations or images you used during your writing process that I could use.

I love your books, Fairest being one of my favorites. Thank you for blessing the world with your writing.

Thanks for considering!

Dear Gail,

I have treasured the story of the Two Princesses of Bamarre for a very long time. I first read it when I was a young child in elementary school and over the years my copy has become worn into fragility. Now, well over a decade later, I'm looking at that same copy of the story I've loved for so long as it sits on my dorm room desk in Israel. I've been studying abroad here for almost a year.

"Step follows step.
Hope follows courage.
Set your face towards danger.
Set your heart on victory."

These words have settled deep in my memory, sometimes reappearing unbidden to give me strength and inspiration in moments when little else can. They tell me - remind me - that it is only through the steady accumulation of forward progress, however small, that we make progress towards our largest goals; that sometimes we have to be brave even when we can only perceive darkness and trust that where courage lives and is acted upon, hope will be kindled; that we must face down that which we fear; and that when we commit ourselves to accomplishing a task, goal, or dream, we should strive for success to the best of our ability and not settle for anything less.

This an overdue note to express my gratitude and love for the story you created and for the words that have only resonated more and more powerfully as I've gotten older. Thank you.

All the best,

Marissa

Hi Gail,

I’m 24 years old, but even in my adult life, I find that I always need a little magic. I first read Ella Enchanted at the age of 6, and I’ve re-read it (and re-read, and re-read, and re-read!) periodically ever since. I’ve even read it out loud to three sets of children that I nannied—an arduous process for sure, but definitely a labor of love.

This year, I’m nearly 6,000 miles from home, studying abroad in Ghana. On my birthday, I found myself alone and very ill in Togo; I had appendicitis and was told that I would need emergency surgery. I couldn’t get ahold of my mom and I was stressed and afraid, so I opened Ella Enchanted. It was an iBooks copy this time rather than the well-loved, dog-eared, falling-apart paperback I originally read it on, but it was every bit as comforting. I’ve finished the re-read now, and it’s left me with a sense of childish happiness, as always.

Thank you for creating a world that inspires courage and confidence no matter the time or place. I know it’s served me well, and someday, I’ll pass that magic on to my kids, as well.

Warm regards,
Cynthia
