Welcome back, Monica, and thanks a lot for
accepting this interview. Here’s my first question: what inspired you to write your
new Pride and Prejudice variation, Allow
Me to Tell You? Was it something you
read or saw?
The idea popped into my head one day when re-reading the section of Pride and Prejudice in Netherfield where Caroline Bingley praises Mr. Darcy for his letter-writing skills. I love this scene in the novel because Caroline is so transparent in her compliments. In a way, she is like Mr. Collins with his ‘little elegant compliments’!
