Very kind of you, Nick!


Lyn Westbrook April 11, 2011 at 7:18 pm

I loved this book. It helped me realize why I lost the magic a few years ago. Now I have hope of rediscovering the magic and the connection that turns ordinary into extraordinary. I am forever grateful.


Signe Pike April 27, 2011 at 2:39 pm

Beautiful, Lyn… the connection that turns ordinary into extraordinary… may we continue to seek it out every day. Thank you..


Kassi April 17, 2011 at 9:52 pm

Your book is wonderful! The photos made your adventures come to life for your readers. Your book will be a reminder to not lose the magick again. Thank you and blessed be!


Signe Pike April 27, 2011 at 2:40 pm

Many thanks to you, Kassi! And I’m so very glad you enjoyed the photos… with love, Signe


Heather Ball May 21, 2011 at 3:16 pm

wow.. thats all I got.. The book was simply amazing and I found I still want more to the story.. I was sad to see it end. You are a wonderful writer as not many can captivate my attention through an entire book. ;) Best of wishes!


Signe Pike May 25, 2011 at 9:45 pm

Wow is I all got!! Thank you for the sweet words, Heather!! : -)

Signe… this is one of those true things that any skeptic will think is a lie. I read your book as a fantasy fan with an open mind but zero evidence in my life of anything ‘other’. So I found your story interesting and appreciated that your evidence wasn’t overly dramatic, and the personal aspect touching. Your approach was realistic and and you didn’t exaggerate your experiences or draw conclusions far outside the logical leaps a rational person would make. Even so, I left your book with pretty much all the same doubts I had before reading it.. after all, *I* didn’t see those things you saw. A couple of hours after finishing your book I went outside to check the tomatoes in my garden (all doing wonderfully despite the heat wave) and as I started back inside I noticed a HUGE black/brown feather on the ground. I was so giddy I said “Oh my gosh, Thank YOU!!” to fairies I didn’t believe in the minute before. Right now I’m kind of in the denial phase you talked about in your book. I live on a farm, I see huge birds around here frequently enough. But, I’ve never in 20 years of living here came across a huge feather like that (or any feathers ever that I can recall) so… it’s pretty remarkable. I showed the feather to my partner, but I was embarrassed to admit the significance it had to me at first, even though he’s into occult/new age/other ‘freakish’ stuff… I just felt embarrassed because I actually *believed* it. I did eventually tell him and he was receptive and interested as I should have realized he would be.

SOOO…. now what Signe?? What happens to a skeptic who suddenly believes in fairies?


Signe Pike July 23, 2011 at 4:05 pm

Ha! How wonderful…. I suppose what happens next on your path is an adventure waiting just for you!


Ally Green August 3, 2011 at 12:52 pm

Signe, I don’t usually write comments like this one, preferring to keep my beliefs and ideas to myself. However, I felt the need to say that I loved your book; I couldn’t put it down! It has rekindled in me some faith in the human race that I thought I had lost together with the belief that there is still magic in this world, if only you know where to look.
More importantly, it has encouraged me to see the beauty in my country that I had become blind to due to cynicism and negativity. It’s inspiring to know that there is somebody out there who has the courage to seek out the magic that is all too often missing in today’s society.

Thank you



Margaret September 4, 2011 at 5:12 am

I read your wonderful book in one magical day! I can’t believe you’ve been here in UK and gone, before I’d read it – come baaaaaaack lol



Signe Pike September 10, 2011 at 4:48 pm

Thank you, Margaret! I’ll be back, I’m certain!! It’s become a home away from home for me there… so glad you loved the book! With love, Signe


Kazzrie September 24, 2011 at 11:44 am

I loved your book!!! I was a total skeptic until I read your book. I think I wanted to believe but just needed to read your book to get there.

I have photos of teenage girls doing cartwheels on a beach at sunset with wee little lights shimmering in each photo and always in different places. Faeries? I’d love to share them. Where can I send or upload them?

Silly girl I am, believing in magic in many ways, even often quoting Peter Pan: ‘all you need is faith, trust and pixie dust!’ and spreading pixie dust all over my emails and facebook posts….yet I thought I didn’t believe in faeries…..hehe….little did I know!…..✶*´¯`•♥❥❥.,,.✶*´¯`•


Signe Pike September 28, 2011 at 1:04 pm

Wonderful! You can send them to… I’d love to see the photos, and am so glad you liked the book!


Kelsey October 28, 2011 at 11:20 pm

Hello! I just finished reading Faery Tale, and all I can think to say is ditto to everything thats already been said. It was amazing, insipiring, and I can’t wait to start my own journey. I really hated to see the book end, so I’ve been wondering if you’ve considered offering it up for a movie/documentary. Just a suggestion from a reader who wants to expierence some of the magic, but can’t quite afford to travel to meet The Fae. Not that it’s going to stop me from trying at home. Again, thank you so much for writing Faery Tale, it is exactly what the world needs right now. A little of the magic that we pushed out, you brought back. Your magical in your own right!


Garv November 9, 2011 at 9:18 am

Thank you so much for this book. I know people always say this but I NEVER comment on sites, I feel like you’ve re-awoken something in me. Not sure what yet, but I’m arranging a few daytrips with my (wonderfully open-minded) husband to try to tap into what it is!

A good portion of my friends and family are absolute sceptics who can’t understand how I could be intelligent and believe in anything other than good honest science. My take is, maybe there’s some physics we don’t know yet! So nice to read something that’s allowed me to start to believe my intuition again. Thank you again.


Signe Pike January 19, 2012 at 10:56 am

Reawakening is the highest goal, I’m so glad to hear that. I hope you’ve already undertaken some fabulous and magical day trips and that the enchantment has already begun to unfold. I’m so grateful you took the time to write me, it means so much to hear from those who have read and enjoyed the book. Best wishes for the New Year! Signe


Lara November 18, 2011 at 12:36 pm

Hi Signe, thank you so much for such an enchanting and magical book. I absolutely loved it and wish there was more!!! It is so wonderful to know there are people out there that do believe. Your book spreads light into the world, and we need so much light!!! Thank you so much!! I do hope you will think of writing another book soon! Much love and light to you, Lara. PS: you definitely look magical yourself :)


Signe Pike January 19, 2012 at 10:53 am

Hi Laura, thank you so much for your note! I’m actually working on another book now, though it’s in pretty early stages – if you’re on Facebook you can “like” my author page to join the community and stay up to date on all things light and life- it’d be great to stay in touch. Wishing you much happiness in 2012, Signe


Taylor December 27, 2011 at 5:36 pm

Like everyone else I wish to say thank you for writing your story down. I actually found the book while exploring the faerie section in the Strand. Mom had taken me to New York for a “cultural experience”. Needless to say your book reopened my eyes, and for that I thank you.
May magic follow you where ever your footstep take you.


Signe Pike January 19, 2012 at 10:45 am

Ahhh, The Strand. I love that place – we used to wander through there for hours. I hope your cultural experience included the pork buns at Momofuku. : -) They’re sent from heaven. I’m so glad you enjoyed the book – wishing you much adventure in days to come!


Lynsey January 18, 2012 at 9:40 pm

Thank you Signe. I am halfway through your book and I just keep thinking thank you for making this journey-the one that I’ve been dreaming of for years but for many reasons cannot make, and for writing it so well that I feel like I’m there too. I can’t wait to finish!


Signe Pike January 19, 2012 at 10:35 am

Thank you so much for writing, Lynsey – if there’s one thing I learned, it’s that enchantment awaits in our own back yards. I’m sending faery special wishes that you’ll be able to make it abroad some day, but even if that doesn’t become a reality for you, I hope you’ll undertake connecting from wherever you are – any tree, garden, or even window box will do. There is so much magic that awaits! With love, Signe


Nicole February 6, 2012 at 8:36 am

Hi Signe,
What a magical book! I loved it, like others have said, you have reawakened something in me I had forgotten. I am quite a sceptic, and feel I need proof before I can believe in something (even when I’m inexplicably drawn to it). Reading your book has given me courage to believe in my own feelings, regardless of proof. Having said that… I was amazed to read about your meeting with the robin in the Chalice Well gardens – I’ve seen him there too! And a couple of days after reading about your journey to the Isle of Man, they talked about the TT racing event (which I had never heard of before) on the radio!! The faeries giving me a little nudge…!
Thank you soooooo much for sharing your beautiful journey.


Signe Pike March 1, 2012 at 12:53 pm

Ha! They’ve certainly got their eye on you, Nicole! Enjoy the journey!!


Lily February 10, 2012 at 10:36 am

Hi Signe i read ur book and looooved it!!!!! What was the name of the place you went in Ireland?????? Im trying to help a friend with a project on ireland


Signe Pike March 1, 2012 at 12:52 pm

Thank you! I hope this gets to you in time… I went to Doolin, Dingle, and Kells Bay. I think you’re referring to the old fort? It was located in the Burren near Doolin. I’d also highly recommend “The Bright Fort” near Kells Bay. I also wrote about The Arran Islands, and the main fort there, Dun Aengus.


Laura May 2, 2012 at 2:08 pm

Having been to Ireland 6 times in the last 5 years, I would also recommend the Ballyalban Faery fort. It’s close to a portal dolmen in the Burren. If you google it, you can see pics of it that people have taken while there. I have video and pictures too from when I was there, but I promised not to post them.


Signe Pike May 6, 2012 at 6:55 pm

Wow, Laura, that sounds amazing. I’ll definitely look it up, and thank you.


Mary Beth Kelley February 12, 2012 at 2:26 pm

My daughter gave me your book because she knows I am believer in Fairies. My sisters used to “take” me to Fairyland when I was a very young child. it was an elaborate journey which required me age 3 – 7 to lie quietly in the dark on my sisters canopy bed with my eyes closed. They would sing and wave scarves over my head that were scented with violet perfume.

They told me that I would not be able to see the fairies until I was 7 my fairy would manifest herself in one of my sisters who would appear transformed with. White gown and glittered face. I would ask my fairy questions and ask her for help with my problems.

it was a wonderful time, the thing is… I did see lights and glowing glimmers that I believe were the real fairies. after reading your book I am planning to ask for a reconnection. Thank you for sharing your story.
Mary Beth


Signe Pike March 1, 2012 at 12:49 pm

Thank you so much for your note, Mary Beth – such a magical and whimsical glimpse of your childhood. So glad you’re seeking a reconnection!


Tanuja June 14, 2012 at 6:41 am

Hi Signe, I met the same little Robin that you met while you were visiting chalice well, in Glastonbury. Thanks for that lovely book.


Signe Pike June 26, 2012 at 11:30 am

That robin has been making the rounds! Sweet creature, isn’t she/he? I’m so glad you enjoyed the book!


Aka June 15, 2012 at 11:12 pm

I LOVE FAERIES! I LOVE FAIRIES TOO! I COULDN’T PUT THE BOOK DOWN! I’M BE……….BE………………………be. I’m being hyperactive again. Just like a 5-year-old, am I not?

Tiana June 15, 2012 at 11:47 pm

Hi Signe! I didn’t read your book yet, but my friends have, and they’ve told me bits and pieces about it. and just from those little stories, I started believing. I think that part of the reason is that I’m a little scared. Me and my friends ventured into the woods in my friend’s neighborhood on a playdate one day, and we all went deeper into the woods and came out a different way then when we went in, even though we went in the sam direction. It’s kinda hard to explain, but I felt like the trees lured us in there, and then led us out again. My friends kept dragging me back there again on later visits, even though I was pretty reluctant(haha). Anyway, I felt these bad vibes, “negative energy”, as my friend called it; that’s why I’m scared of both having to go back there again and having to read about you going through stuff like that and feel like it’s me in the book. But I really enjoy making FH’s(faerie houses)! And I’m sure I’ll love your book, too, no matter how scary parts of the book feel! I guess it might kinda be like a Goosebumps book; scary yet satisfying.

P.S: Aka is my twin sister, and she was there for every experience I told you about here.


Signe Pike June 26, 2012 at 11:28 am

Dear Baka, thanks for writing! Sure, there were some scary moments in the book, but the wonderful moments far outweighed those, I hope. It’s important to always, always listen to those gut feelings, your intuition. If a place feels like it has bad vibes, and you feel like you don’t want to go back there, please do your best to avoid it. There are plenty of woods that feel positive, light, energizing and pretty – seek those out. I know peer pressure can be hard, but it’s important to enforce your personal boundaries too about what you will and won’t do,based on what your inner guidance is telling you. If you do go back to the woods, just make sure to take a moment and quietly (in your mind) ask for protection. But my advice would be to steer clear altogether! If I hadn’t been writing a book, I sure wouldn’t have gone into that dark scary wood on the Isle of Man, and my intuition was right! Now I’ve learned I have nothing I need to prove to anyone else – it’s better to trust my instincts and be safe, even when we might not know what we’re keeping ourselves safe from. I’m so glad to hear about the faerie houses! Keep up the good work and wishing you many enchanted adventures!


Tiana June 16, 2012 at 12:14 am

Oh, and I forgot to tell you so I’m telling you now: Tiana’s not my real name, it’s Baka.


Anne July 19, 2012 at 8:01 pm

Hi Signe

Just finished your book today on the way home from work, loved it. It makes me want to go over to the UK to find the Fairies myself.
I was reading your book on my way to an Arts and Craft show that had someone who was selling Fairy Doors and guess what chapter I stopped at, yep you guessed right ‘Knock Nine Times on the Faery Door. The Fairies did have a hand in picking the door for me, as it was not one I would have normally picked.




Signe Pike July 28, 2012 at 3:09 pm

I’m so glad you loved the book, Anne! Thanks so much for writing…I hope you’ll enjoy the faery door!


Stefania Marie July 30, 2012 at 5:25 pm

Signe, your book itself wove magic into my life. I have never given up my faith in magic from childhood, but reading your book made me realize how distracted I had become. Not only from magic and the faery realm but from nature itself. I have felt asleep for many years and the last few months I have felt a reawakening of sorts. Reading about your journey showed me I am not alone. You have inspired me to follow my own path and enjoy every moment of my life. Not trying to force magic but keeping an eye open while I live.
The other night I sat on my front porch at sunset watching for faeries with my five year old son. We live in the middle of the country so we had a prime view of a beautiful field. We sat as patiently as a five year old boy will allow until twilight. I was begining to worry about my son becoming dissapointed by our lack of faery visitors. So I told the faeries that if they would show my son I would leave them some presents by the treein our yard. Shortly after I spotted a blue light shimmering in the field I had been watching. The very spot that had drawn my attention earlier that night. Everytime I caught a glimpse of this light it seemed to vanish almost becoming like smoke in the air. I didn’t tell my son because I wanted him to verify without being told. Moments later he pointed at the same spot saying Mommy do you see the blue light! He became excited declaring that he saw many faeries and that he knew theyhad been there the whole time. He kept asking why the didnt let him see before and I told him the had to trust him first, explaining that children can see better than adults.
That night after his bedtime I took a piece of graham cracker and chocolate outside and place it between the roots of a tree. I said this is for you, thank you for showing my little boy magic…. Honestly I assumed the next morning it would still be there, atleast the chocolate, when I woke up I went outside like a child myself to check. Sure enough it was gone.
Now my son does have a wild imagination and I myself have tried to come up with a rational explanation. Never the less thank you for the inspiration. I hope my son and I have many more magical experiences together. If not he has the night we sat on the porch and the faeries came out for him.


Signe Pike August 17, 2012 at 2:22 pm

What an incredible experience. Thank you so much for sharing it with all of us. I’m so honored that my story helped to reinvigorate your awareness of the enchantment all around you!


Sally December 10, 2012 at 1:56 pm

I was so moved by your book, and I want to thank you for sharing your incredible journey with us. You put into words so beautifully and perfectly the things I have never been able to adequately describe—those experiences that can’t quite be explained, as well as the complex feelings that come with growing up, leaving the past behind and finding your purpose in the future. Regardless of what a reader might believe about fairies (I find myself somewhere on the middle ground of “skeptical believer” I think!), your book leaves every reader with an important message. Life is not made richer by obtaining more, but by leaving your eyes and heart open to what’s around you, because then you can truly see all that you have and all that exists in the world. Some days I am open, and I feel connected, blessed, and so full of joy. Other days I forget to look and listen. On those days, seeing your book on my shelf is a reminder–to love, be grateful, and to let magic into my life. Thank you for giving me that gift :)


Daniela Eikermann January 15, 2013 at 4:33 am

Dear Signe,
I have hear your book on CD now. I hear it in my car as I travel to work. The book is beautiful!!
It’s so great what do you have see an feel at this journey. I wish I could be with you on this journey.
Ever I was sure that fairys are real.
I wish you a lot fairys in your life.
Bye Daniela


Gyp January 20, 2013 at 5:02 am

Hi Signe, loving your book, it’s high time for a re-enchantment of Earth, you are a true poneer! My story began in 2006, in Brttany, Northern France. I was there with my husband at the invite of a white witch named Karen. She lives in a 900 year old converted mill house on a massive lake, shrouded in mist and the home of red deer. Karen took us a to a faery stream to ‘see what we could pick up’, nothing much grabbed our attention, so we returned that night…my husband brought his digital camera and the flash decided not to work, but he snapped away, just in case…we only had the light from Karens key torch, so only enough to point the way. It was pitch black, the banks were 10 feet deep, knotted with ancient tree roots. It felt eery, but it was too dark to even make each other out. After about 10 minutes I started to see small black flitting shapes all around us, and high up in the trees that were slightly more visible now in the faint starlight. karen said she could sense a presence standing next to me, it felt a little hostile! Oh my God, I was a little freaked out! Then suddenly we were surrounded by tiny sparkling lights, whizzing around us. It was a spectacular sight, but we were very unsettled, so we decided to leave as we felt we were somehow trespassing. When we returned home to England, Rob put the photos on his computer just in case anything showed up. He brightened the pictures and as he did we saw a massive orb, around 7′ tall on the edge of the stream, it was surrounded by lots of tiny rainbow orbs. Down by the stream the orbs were everywhere, in the air, over the water. I was delighted, proof at last, I always believed after having seen twin faeries sitting on a branch when I was 4 years old. Keep on believing and trusting! Thank you, bless you, love Gyp x ps the Brittany river faeries are called the Korrigan


Gyp February 4, 2013 at 6:24 am

ps I have emailed you 3 of the faery photos from Brittany, please feel free to share them with everyone, they are brilliant! Look closely at the 2 pics that appear ‘empty’, there are faeries everywhere. The 3rd photo is teeming with them and you can see them clearly. The photos were taken in the pitch black, flash refused to work, but mysteriously ‘fixed’ itself when we weren’t near the river. x


Paris Lim May 28, 2013 at 11:08 pm

Thank you Signe for such a wonderful book on fairies… I’m laid up in bed sick but having a great time reading your book on fairies. It renews my belief that there is magic in this world, and one day I hope to visit Glastonbury’s Chalice well and the tor as you did. My friend has been there and showed me his pics. He has also seen the fairy lights and it’s indeed a magical place. Thank you for sharing and looking forward to more books and articles on fairies by you :) Blessed be


Pamela Knudsen September 17, 2013 at 12:21 pm

Dear Signe, I have been reading your lovely book throughout the summer, and just finished over my morning coffee. I’ve always been intrigued with magical, mythical beings, especially mermaids and faeries. My favorite Disney story is Peter Pan, mostly because of Tinkerbell and the mermaids. All that to say, how thrilled I was to receive as a gift a story about a woman who had such conviction to find faeries in the “real world”. I loved every step of your adventure and your conclusion. Your story makes me feel not so child-like or crazy when I look for faeries during a hike in the canyon or when I watch a sunset over the ocean and I squint at the waves hoping to see a mermaid. I just watched your slide show and how wonderful it was to see all of the places you went–thank you for sharing! I look forward to your next adventure. Cheers!

Cherie March 18, 2014 at 5:33 am


What more is there to say that hasn’t been said? Your book took me along on a magical journey, and I felt like I was taking a trip with a close friend while being in my own house. It took me four days to read the book, but I’ve already noticed a change within myself and the energies around me since I first picked it up – subconsciously I decided to try what you have done and just keep an eye out. It seems strange, but I feel like your book was a step I needed to take to rediscover a part of myself that in recent weeks I’ve only just begun to connect with once more through rediscovering art. In these last three days alone I have had a constant feeling of connectedness to the nature around me – which is strange when I’m in the bustling city of Wellington (New Zealand) and there’s not much to go to that’s really nature. But one thing in particular has stuck with me.
Two days ago, while exploring the town belt (the only “real” nature in the city) with my housemate, we stumbled upon a shaded little area, and instantly I thought “faeries are here” and as soon as I thought that, I felt a wave of positive, welcoming energy from the forest and I was filled with happiness. Yesterday, when walking home at the edge of the town belt at night, I suddenly had an urge to stop and rest my hands, one against a strong knarled root of a towering pine high above me, the other on the rock of the exposed soil. Upon placing my hands where I was guided and closing my eyes I felt instantly connected again, and a low thrum of energy that felt so old and knowing and pure. I felt connected to the forest its self.

Thank you SO MUCH for helping me to awaken this side of myself further. I can not express how deep my thanks goes to you for writing the book; it’s like it helped something to click for myself. I hope I can help to spread the magic of this other realm that sits near ours and overlaps into it like you have :)



Signe Pike November 11, 2014 at 10:26 am

I love it. Thanks so much for writing, Cherie!


Trudi October 19, 2014 at 9:23 am

Thank you so much for sharing your story… I bought your book quite a while ago and finally got to read it! I could not have read it at a more suitable time in my life than now and feel almost sad that it is finished. I loved your writing style and reading about your journey….I am not quite sure what I believe yet, but it has certainly stirred/woken up something within :) . I look forward to reading more of your work….


Signe Pike November 11, 2014 at 10:29 am

Thank you, Trudi. I’m working on a new magical book! I’m so glad to have your readership and support. And am hoping whatever has been awoken will lead you on a great journey all your own!


Stacey November 4, 2014 at 5:23 pm

Dearest Signe,

Like Cherie said…what MORE could be said. I found your book in my local library and thinking I didn’t have time to really read it, but I could carry it around for 2 weeks and try. I was consumed. I still have it….a month later!! (big fines ahead) lol I actually just went online and purchased my own copy!!! Your book was sooo very magical for me. I read it at night after exhausting days of full time insurance agent, mother to a 13 yo, dinner chores ect and taking care of and visiting my mother in rehab who was recovering from a stroke. You and your book was my escape from reality, yet helped me to realize the reality I wanted. I’ve always been enchanted and believed in the Faery world and to suddenly find someone that was the same yet had the means to go search and find it…well, I was living vicariously through you and your memories. I do hope you write another book soon cause I sure look forward to reading it and hope to actually meet you one day just to give you a big hug and thanks for opening the doorway in my mind….to remember that magic and faeries still do exist, and to thank you for the light heartedness you brought back into my life at a stressful time. Bless you and thanks again! Stacey, Ocala, Fl.


Signe Pike November 11, 2014 at 10:32 am

Dear Stacey,
What a beautiful note. I’m so glad the book found its way to you! I’d love to meet you too – I may be coming to Florida for my next book when it’s released (a while down the road yet.) If you are on Facebook and want to keep in touch, you can join me here – I post nearly every day and we have a wonderful community of enchantment lovers.


Shelley June 13, 2016 at 7:36 am

Hi Signe,

I am currently reading your book (after purchasing it in Glastonbury!) and am absolutely loving it. I have also met Brian Froud (at a Faery Fayre in, you’ve guessed it, Glastonbury!!) and completely recognised the man you described.

I’ve always believed in something other – like, you, I yearned to find out what that “other” was. I took Brian’s advice; he said you don’t have to believe, but take a minute to imagine what a world would be like if they WERE real. Isn’t that better than anything you could imagine? And it does make my life a little richer to have that belief.

I am a teacher in a secondary school and have images of faeries all over my room – it is something all my students know and comment about. If people think me an eccentric old “Trelawney-esque” teacher (and I do wear crystals about my person and not really follow conventional fashion trends) but I have the comfort of the Fae to draw on, that’s a reasonable compromise.

Keep telling everyone.

Love and Light,

I love your book. I purchased it soon after its release and have read it multiple times since then. The places you visited- and the sense of enchantment- call to me. Thanks for sharing your experience.
