Hi Michelle, thanks for taking the time to answer our questions!
Thank you for having me!
Q: As much as I secretly wanted to know the more private aspects of Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy's world, it never occurred to me that this could even be done. What prompted this project?
I was approached through an agent by the publisher (Adams Media) to work on the book for a brand new line they were starting called The Wild and Wanton Editions. They liked my writing style and wanted me on the project. Before this I had published and won awards for original historical romances, as well as other fiction genres. I never even dreamed of doing something like this before I was asked, but having said that, I love to try new things and took the job.
The W&W books are editions of the original, not a complete rewrite. Roughly, it is 70% Jane Austen, 30% New.
Q: That's very interesting. Who are you? What do you do?
I'm multi-published author Michelle M. Pillow. I write historical, contemporary, futuristic, paranormal, fantasy, dark paranormal romances. I have a photography degree. I am a journalist for Paranormal Underground Magazine. I co-own The Raven Books with author Mandy M. Roth. I guess you could say I do a lot. I love research and trying new things, and I'm always open to new opportunities. Currently, I am working toward my degree in History...
