Interview With a Janeite, Special Guest Carole in Canada! — 42 Comments

  1. Congratulations Carole! As a result of my interview, I enjoyed my 15 minutes of fame and I hope you do as well. It’s fun to answer the questions, isn’t it? Getting to pin Jack Caldwell down isn’t the easiest, but your questions were excellent.

  2. Congratulations, Carole. I love learning more about you and your thoughts on JAFF. That’s a great picture of you and looks like you are having a good walk! 🙂 Great questions for Jack Caldwell.

    • Thank you Janet T.! It was fun and I am always learning new things about Jane and the JAFF community as each year goes by. I was a bit hesitant to put my picture out there, but I was having my Jane Austen/Elizabeth Bennet moment when I was over in Ireland last year, so I thought it only appropriate to use it here! I just didn’t land in any mud! It was a lovely walk up this long path in Portmagee on the Iveragh Peninsula to look out to the Skellig Islands.

    • Thank you Shannon! Yes, it has been fun and I have really enjoyed answering these questions and being a part of this series!

  3. A lovely interview!! I really enjoyed learning more about you, Carole! I especially enjoyed your reasons why we continue to read Jane Austen’s works–spot on!! 🙂

    Thank you for sharing your thoughts with us, and thanks to Nicole and Mr. Caldwell for their contributions as well!

    Susanne 🙂

  4. What a great interview Carole! I loved your reasons why people still love Jane Austen’s work, especially no 1. I think it is because her characters are so well written that people can imagine them so clearly. Thank you for sharing your thoughts.

    • Thank you Glynis! It is so true that because Jane’s characters are so well written that people can imagine them so clearly and has made them so real! She and her characters have become immortal!

  5. Jack and Nicole, I want to thank you so much for inviting me and interviewing me for this series. You and all the other authors have provided us with endless hours of enjoyment with your imaginations. Thank you and I look forward to many more! May the Muse be with you all!

  6. Carole,it was a pleasure learning more about you and especially nice to put a face to the name!!

    I agree wholeheartedly with your statement about the great spirit of generosity that exists among the JAFF. I think it’s the fact that,like you said,our opinions are acknowledged,valued and accepted by others that makes this community so warm and welcoming.

    To think that authors,bloggers,readers and reviewers can all meet up online,share recommendations and opinions on all things Jane,is simply a wonderful thing. It has certainly enriched my life!

    Thanks to all concerned for this great post! Carole,it was lovely to ‘meet’ you!

    • Thank you Mary! You are absolutely correct, the JAFF community ‘has certainly enriched my life’ as well. I look forward to ‘meeting’ others as the interviews continue. I like learning the diversity of individuals that love all things Jane!

  7. I loved this interview! Thank you for sharing it. Carole has become one of my dearest JAFF friends and it’s one of my biggest wishes to meet her in person and spend time together chatting away about all things related to Jane Austen!

    She has such a generous heart and I love the way she describes the JAFF community. Until you’re part of us, it’s hard to describe our love of JANE to others, which is what also makes knowing a person like Carole such a gem!

    I didn’t know she had thoughts of penning her own story… maybe she can be persuaded to reconsider this idea??

    • Oh Claudine thank you so much for your heartwarming words. Yes, you are certainly one of my dearest JAFF friends and we will meet sooner rather than later!

  8. Loved this interview and Carol, you insights on JA and JAFF are just perfect. We have a great little community, don’t we! Thanks so much for sharing here and thanks Jack for the interview.

    • Thank you Marilyn! I had so much fun! I must say how much has been added to my life after finding Jane and JAFF and this wonderful community.
