The fact that Isobelle gave you her mailing address means she genuinely
would be happy to hear from you. Authors don't give out their addresses
lightly! As to what kind of letters they "take notice of", I would say
anything that shows an intelligent response to their work and a respect for
their person is likely to go down well!
