I haven't noticed her style of writing being more British or American... I've always just seen her style as 'hers'. I know what some of the dialogue sounds very Irish, but coming from an Irish character, that's to be expected. But the thing for which I am most grateful, is her spelling of words with the omission of U. I guess it's just because I was raised with this sort of spelling, but words like color, honor, valor etc. with the U included just drives me batty. And I know C_ris will come back and shove all of it in my face
