    Truman Capote was a lifelong friend of childhood neighbor Lee, and was allegedly the inspiration for the character of Dill in her best-seller. Lee aspired to become the "Jane Austen of Alabama." Lee wrote about her childhood memories incorporating the Scottsboro trials.

    Her fiction was certainly influenced and shaped by her childhood experiences, shared with a brother and two sisters and fellow author-to-be Truman Capote, a frequent summer visitor to Monroeville.
