Character Profile

Name: Veronica “Ronnie” Billings

Age: Seventeen

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.

Profession: One time Head Leader of a camp that brought young girls to the Lettings, now works with Phoenix in his Peaceful Revolution.

Traits: Also sees the good in everyone. Is willing to sacrifice herself for the sake of those she loves most. Fights tirelessly for what she believes in. Loves with her whole heart. Loves to swim. Terrified of thunderstorms.

Strengths: Bold and strong. Brave. Intelligent.

Flaws: Doesn’t know how smart she is. Blames herself for her past as the Leader who had singularly brought more young girls to the Lettings than any other Leader in history.

Ambitions: To end the Lettings and the Couplings. To protect those last little girls—the type “O” blood types—still in her care. To aid Phoenix in his quest to lead a Peaceful Revolution and bring equality and hope to their world.

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.
