|Great fun. I ran Monday Knight (from her own new book, "Monday Knight," due out in mid-March) through the list. In spite of her looking like a mummy in the hospital, she did pretty well. Only problem I had is her favorite TV show is reruns of Mary Tyler Moore and that wasn't an option!
For chapter 1 of "Monday Knight" see www.fictionaddiction.net. Great idea, Annette.
