Great little quiz. I really enjoyed it. Your quiz is a wonderful idea to help people understand the importance of fleshing out their characters. Payton Lee - Historic Romance Author

great quiz, but none of it applied to an Indian maiden in the 14-15 century!
Reviewed by Janet Smith 2/11/2002
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 Great idea, Annette.
