Dear Ms. Bull,

Yes, Resolute is my fic-writing pseudonym. Yes, you can go find other things I’ve written. For the love of all that is holy, please, please, PLEASE take the ratings and warnings seriously.

  1. Thank you for the recommendations. I enjoyed your story. I like the diary and letter format. It works well for this historical period. I look forward to reading some of the others when I have more downtime on the computer.
