The Spinning Room: Why Do You Write Colonial Fiction?
You have a passion for history. You long to live in bygone eras. Some of your favorite heroes include Abigail, Molly, Daniel, and the Georges (last names not required).

(Names: Abigail Adams, Molly Pitcher, Daniel Boone, George Washington and George Whitefield)
