Dear Gail Carson Levine,
Today, I found myself rereading both Ella Enchanted and Fairest, two books that I loved when I was young. This is a rare occurrence, for me to read books that I enjoyed back then, because with the pleasant nostalgia often comes the unpleasant memories of the things I went through back then.

But this was not the case for me, rereading those books today. Instead, just as I did as a child escaping the horrors of the world, I found myself pulled into the world of the books, falling in love with it all over again, and finding new appreciation in it as an adult with a much better understanding for writing.

The characters have such strong voices, and even unsympathetic characters such as Ivi are compelling. I can't help being impressed with the world building, and look forward to seeing more of it when I read Ogre Enchanted (when I have a bit of spare money to buy a book).

I apologize for leaving such a long comment, but I simply couldn't stop until I let all my thoughts out. Thank you for writing the books you've written, as they've had a huge impact on my life. Books were my escape as a child, and now writing is, but the books I grew up with are still close to my heart, and that is especially true for Ella Enchanted and Fairest (though I did read some of your other books too, as I recall I also loved Ever!).

Thank you again.
Leon

I'm so glad you're teaching CEILING! Yuda (Judah) was a Jewish name, and the practice back then was to take a Christian name after conversion. I don't know why he picked Pero.

I am teaching your book A Ceiling Made of Eggshells and the students were wondering why you chose the name Pero when Yuda converted. Thank you.

Emalyn, I'm delighted that WRITING MAGIC has been helpful! Alas, I don't have time to look at your books because I'm deep in writing my next one.
