Name: Veronica “Ronnie” Billings
Physical Description: Almost six feet tall, with very long jet black hair, and almond-shaped eyes. Ronnie is exotic, she is a mix of her ancestors who were the “Natives,” and, people who came from, “An exotic place on the other side of the world; a thriving place which once was painted in the color red.” Ronnie is beautiful and extremely intelligent, although she doesn’t realize it.

Skills: Great leader. Excellent with children. Thinks on her feet—solves many problems.
Motivations: Love motivates Ronnie. Her love for the girls in her care, for her friends, and especially, Phoenix.
Favorite color: Deep blue, the color of Phoenix’s eyes.
Favorite food: Ravioli—in particular, the ravioli she shared with Phoenix that first time they were alone in his cabin.
Favorite song: There isn’t much music in their dystopian world, but, “A Thousand Years” by Christina Perri would be a favorite of Ronnie.
Wardrobe: Usually wears black tank tops and camouflage, but when with Principal Leader Farnsworth, wears gowns and business attire she detests.
Goals: To bring peace to her world, to receive an education, and to be with Phoenix… always.
About the Author
Given my love for cities and all that is gritty, my new obsession with trees really has me stumped. (Sorry.) Maybe it's because trees are the inspiration behind my YA/NA novel, THE LETTING.
Whatever the reason for my new infatuation, some things remain constant -- like my love for: coffee (although sadly, it's now decaf); yoga; Luna bars (I am petitioning for them to bring back Chocolate Raspberry!); running in my neighborhood; Hemingway; Bukowski... and, above all, my husband and my girls.
I'm also a playwright. I have my B.A. in English and my M.A. in Theatre.
This is a tour-wide giveaway.
