Stephanie--Oh, my! What an honor! Happy birthday, Ella, when she arrives!

Scott--Happy birthday to your girlfriend! Thanks for letting me know--and for passing my books along to young readers!

Susanna--Thank you! I can't take credit for the Princess Academy series, though, since I didn't write those books. My college major had nothing to do with writing, and I didn't start writing until many years later. Writers take many paths, so I'm not sure how to advise you, except that you should keep writing.

Christie--Thanks for letting me know. I'm so glad that TWO PRINCESSES helped you through your difficult times. And I'm delighted you're passing along your love of reading to your children. Just saying, if you don't already know, my prequel to TWO PRINCESSES, THE LOST KINGDOM OF BAMARRE, just came out in May.

When I was 7 years old I had learned how to read but I was still struggling. I enjoyed reading to get out of my own head space for a while because at home I was at the mercy of a single mother who was a severely abusive alcoholic.

One year at school during our annual book fair I picked up your book "The Two Princesses of Bamarre" and was catapulted out of my abused childhood and into a world of adventure and magic.
During my 7th grade year we started learning about poetry...I looked back to your story of the two princesses and used Drault as my inspiration to write my first poem that later was published online and I began to use writing along with reading to escape the traumas of my home life.
Now I am a 25 year old woman, happily married with children of my own who are learning to read and my 8 year old daughter eats up every chapter book she can get her hands on. I look at her now at the age I was when I found your book on the shelf and hand her the same book that I carried with me from the time I was 7 years old.
Your books inspired me and kept me going through my troubled childhood and I am proud to pass your stories onto my children now as they begin to read and explore the world around them.

I have always wanted to speak to you and let you know that I hope you know that your writing inspires people of many stages in life. I Keep on my bookshelf the exact same copy with me today that I purchased as a child. The pages are falling apart from being read over and over again for the last 18 years but the words always remain the same.
"Step follows step
Hope follows courage
Set your face towards danger
Set your heart on victory."

I really like your books and I have read Ella Enchanted, A tale of 2 Castles, Stolen Magic, Fairest, The 2 Princesses of Bamarre, and The Princess Academy series. Can you tell me the best college course you think is best to take? I want to be an author. (even though I'm only 10)And can you send me your autograph? And can you write another book about Ella Enchanted? I would really like it if you did. I really like fantasy.

Good afternoon, Ms. Levine!
I just wanted to send a note of thank you for your wonderful stories. My girlfriend and I are librarians in Maryland and thoroughly enjoy reading your books, but also to recommend them to young readers. As a surprise for my girlfriend's birthday, I ordered a custom book cake with Ella Enchanted as one of the books! It was too pretty to eat.

Anyways, I just wanted to say thank you for making our world a little more magical.

Hi Ms. Levine,

I just wanted to write and let you know that I am 28, pregnant with my first child, and my husband and I just found out that we are having a girl.

Your book Ella Enchanted was my absolute favorite growing up, and I must have read this book over 100 times (no exaggeration).

We are naming our daughter Ella in honor of this.

Thank you for spreading magic to all the young girls (and boys) out there. You are very much appreciated.
