More About the Author

Danika Dinsmore is an award-winning writer, spokenword artist, and educator. She earned her MFA in Writing and Poetics from Naropa University's Jack Kerouac School of Disembodied Poetics (founded by poets Allen Ginsberg and Anne Waldman). Her early writing career was built on experimental poetry and collaborative spokenword performances. While living in Seattle, she organized and performed with the 12-person Word Orchestra as well as the performance group ForWord FourTete. Her inspired performances earned her the Washington Poets Association award for Performance Poetry.

After moving to British Columbia she turned her attention to film, television, and new media working as an artist-in-the-schools and media literacy educator for Learning Through the Arts, teaching screenwriting courses in the Writing Department at Vancouver Film School and at Capilano University, and producing a film festival and new media forum for Women in Film and Television Vancouver.

When not working on her Faerie Tales from the White Forest series, she travels to schools, conferences, and festivals across North America on her Imaginary Worlds Tours. Her background in performance, poetry, screenwriting, and education has served her well in the kid lit arena. And best of all, she doesn't have to grow up.

Format: Paperback
Brigitta is a young faery of the White Forest, a oasis of safety in a wide, threatening world. Her concerns are familiar: attempting to impress the cool older fairies; wondering what she'll be when she grows up; and trying not to let Himalette, her younger sister, drive her completely insane.

Just days before the Forest's Hourglass of Protection is reset for another cycle, Brigitta chases after the troublesome Himalette. A sprite casts a spell that tints them both blue just before a blinding light flashes through the trees. The sisters soon discover that all creatures in the White Forest, except themselves, have turned to stone. Worst of all, the sands of the Hourglass have nearly run out. If the faery Elders can't be restored in time to conduct the necessary ritual, the White Forest will cease to be.

The sisters' only hope is to traverse the dangerous Dark Forest in search of Hrathgar, a faery banished long ago for an unknown, unspeakable crime. Will the faeries learn to work together? Will their quest be completed in time? And will Brigitta figure out, not only who she is, but who she's meant to become?

No, I'm not going to tell you. You have to read the book.

First, how much do I love this cover? It is absolutely stunning, as are, I've discovered, all the works of artist Julie Fain. In full awareness that I'm a total geek, I'm seriously tempted to purchase several prints to give to my friends and/or hang in my office. This cover will sell Brigitta of the White Forest all by itself.

I was very impressed by depth of imagination represented in this book. The fairies of the White Forest have history, mythology, culture, and class structure.

Format: Paperback
I'm a father of a nine year old girl and I have to say, I hate fairy books. Or at least I did until I read Brigitta of the White forest. I won't recap the story (others have) but it follows the traditional hero's journey, but the hero is a ten year old girl with wings. I found the story engaging, a little darker at times than I expected and some very interesting and well drawn characters. If you have a daughter, it's a great story to read to her!

Format: Paperback
Brigitta and her younger sister, Himalette, are the only two faeries in their entire village of White Forest that have not been affected by a mysterious curse. During the preparations for the annual festival, every living being in the White Forest is turned to stone. Brigitta suddenly finds herself faced with a great challenge. She doesn't know how to reverse the curse--or where to go for help--but she knows she must do something before the magical protection around her village is destroyed. With a great responsibility weighing on them, Brigitta and Himalette start their journey to Dead Mountain, where they hope to find help from the banished faerie, Hrathgar.

Along the way to Dead Mountain, Briggita and her sister encounter many dangers and make new friends. Together, Brigitta, Himalette, and Minq (a character that seems to resemble Jar Jar Binx from StarWars) head off to Dead Mountain. When they get there, they meet Hrathgar. Brigitta and Himalette are mesmerized by her kindness and can't seem to understand why she has always been described as evil in the stories of faerie lore. Minq is not so easily impressed by Hrathgar's innocent appearance. Through several twists and turns of events, the young faeries quickly learn that everything is not what it appears to be. Hrathgar is actually two separate people! Hrathgar Good (the faerie they first meet) and Hrathgar Evil (the faerie from the stories) are split personalities that share the curse from ancient times. Brigitta and her friends find themselves faced with an even more difficult challenge: they have to end the curse on their village and defeat Hrathgar Evil. But they aren't sure if they are capable of destroying such a powerful faerie all by themselves.

I must start off saying that this book was great!

Format: Paperback
A terrible spell has been placed on the fairies of the White Forest. All except Brigitta and her little sister, Himalette, have been turned to stone. The ceremony of resetting the Hourglass of Protection must take place as scheduled or the White Forest will be in danger. But the High Priestess will be unable to perform it as a stone statue.

Brigitta knows there is one fairy who might be able to help. Hrathgar hasn't been affected by this stone spell, since she lives outside the White Forest. Brigitta and Himalette head out to find her in the hopes that she can offer assistance. But the area they need to travel through is treacherous, and Hrathgar has been banished from the White Forest for something evil she did a long time ago. Even though they know they are in great danger, the two young fairies are determined to save the White Forest and restore everyone back to normal.

Brigitta of the White Forest is fantasy and adventure in a delightful combination. Readers will love Brigitta's bravery in facing Hrathgar, while trying to protect her little sister. She is also clever in determining if their unusual companions, Minq and Gola, are allies or enemies in their quest. The story is fast-paced, with lots of imaginative elements to keep the reader interested until the very end. I highly recommend this enjoyable novel.
