Writing as Piper Winifred
Gabrielle grew up surrounded by stories and storytellers. Her earliest memories consist of long walks with a Dad who was forever reading poetry and tales of wonder, and telling stories passed down through generations that always began with "Once upon a time, there was a little girl named Gabrielle. . ."
Gabrielle's books reflect the legacy her father left her.
Blending an active imagination and ongoing desire to reach towards identity and authenticity in order to write, her books become a bridge between the EternalPresent and the Imagined Future. She brings her fascination with the search for community to her writing.
Gabrielle works to discover the authentic origins and elements of stories paired with a rigorous program of classical and ancient languages, archival research, exploration in dusty, musty places (like crypts, abbeys & monasteries), along with arduous translation, and exacting theoretical standards. Understanding the human condition in context has been a lifelong endeavor and academic pursuit encompassing the role of Identity Consciousness and the joy of Storytelling.

It is a sad fact of everyday life that monsters live among us. They reside next door, and in our neighborhoods, passing as “normal” human beings. They reside in politics, the business & corporate world, in entertainment & academia, and even in our extended families. They are all around us, and often we do not recognize the danger until it is too late. The damage modern-day monsters cause is great, and we can be stuck with the monstrous aftermath including the embarrassment and shame of a predator’s attack. Monsters can be recognized, however, then categorized, exposed, and defeated. Monsters coming into our lives can even be prevented.
This book will give you the tools and resources you need to make you safe and monster-free.
The predicament we find ourselves facing is not just about our personal lives; society is failing to provide the safety net necessary for the common good. Monstrous behavior is becoming acceptable and even the norm in large segments of the public sphere. Modern day monsters thrive at all levels of society, and to speak against the violence and the outrageous and despicable ideas and deeds of these foes becomes increasingly more difficult. Sometimes it seems like the monsters are winning at all levels of society!

This familiar tale follows its expected course, except this is THE AUTHENTIC TALE, so there are some surprises. Ella receives help from friendly animals and servants with her troubles. The king announces a 3-day festival, and though her stepmother has forbidden her to attend, the magic tree provides a new, beautiful dress each day so she can go to the festival, incognito. She meets the prince, and they fall in love. After the festival, Prince Christoph searches far & wide for the mystery woman who lost her glass slipper, so he can find his true love and marry her. He is disappointed as woman after woman tries to fit the slipper and fails. Finally, he arrives at Ella's house for the climax of the story.
