What do you love best/interests you most about the Regency Era?
Alissa loves the elegance of the Regency period – the manners and mores of the time, and the fashions and the foibles of Society. But it was also a time of great invention and change, which makes it a fascinating period in which to set a novel.
What do you like the most about the Beau Monde Chapter? How long have you been a member?
Alissa was a member of the Beau Monde chapter many years ago when it was still a yahoo group. She recently re-joined the Beau Monde (in March this year) and enjoys reading all the threads as they are very educational and informative and the members are so supportive of each other.
