Author Karen Booth's new release, Bring Me Back, features a heroine who gets to meet—and do more than that with!—the musician she had a crush on back in the '80s. Karen herself has a music background, and her books interweave her current life as a writer with her music biz past. Today she's here to talk about what makes her all tingly—British accents. Thanks for joining us, Karen!
We all have at least one weakness—chocolate, wine, expensive shoes, bad movies. I hesitate to call them guilty pleasures, because I don’t believe in that. If you enjoy something, you should do so without guilt.
One of my biggest weaknesses is British men, or more specifically the things they say and the way they say them. Is it just the accent? Maybe, but there’s no denying that anything said with a British accent sounds more intelligent, certainly believable, and ultimately awesome.
My car is parked in a tow-away zone? Tell me in a British accent and I promise I won’t be the slightest bit upset.
