Gail Carson Levine (1947-)
Gail Carson Levine, an American author of fairytales for young readers and teenagers, was born in New York in 1947 to parents David and Sylvia. She started writing at a young age, but all her manuscripts were rejected until the Newberry Honor story "Ella Enchanted" was published in 1997. It is a retelling of the fairytale "Cinderella," and launched her fame as a writer of fairytales with a twist. In 1999 she published four books, the first of these being the historical novel "Dave at Night" and the other three being "The Fairy’s Mistake," "The Princess Test," and "Princess Sonora and the Long Sleep" (later collected into a volume called "The Princess Tales: Volume One").
