‘Faery Tale’ author Signe Pike, is to visit the 3 Wishes Faery Fest

Signe Pike

The ‘Faery Tale’ author Signe Pike will be giving a free talk, signing copies of her book and having LOT’S of faery fun! ♥

Signe Pike worked as a book editor in New York City before leaving to write Faery Tale. The non-fiction memoir chronicles her journey from New York City to the rolling hills of England, Ireland, Scotland and beyond as she searched to prove the existence of the illusive and magical beings we call faeries. From the cozy kitchen of Brian and Wendy Froud to the wild and sweeping moors of Scotland, Signe interviewed those brave enough to still believe, in hopes of rediscovering belief herself. As Signe attempts to connect with the spirit world – and reconnect with her sense of wonder – she comes to view both herself and the world around her in a profoundly new light. Captivating, full of heart, and unabashedly whimsical, Faery Tale is more than a memoir-it’s the story of rekindling that spark of belief that makes even the most skeptical among us feel like a child again. She now lives in Charleston, where she is at work on her next exploration into things unseen.
