Meet A Character: Veronica St. Clair

Hello, lovelies!  I’ll be posting a few character profiles for you to take in and absorb as Change Of Season‘s release date approaches.  I’ll be posting a few, so check back regularly.

Up first, one of my favourite characters to write in this tale.

Name:  Veronica Laurel St. Clair
Age:  17
Birthplace:  Mississauga, Ontario
Years At Casteel Preparatory Academy: 5
Specialty Major:  Drama
Visual Casting:  A busty Amanda Seyfried

Veronica is the popular girl in school who has no sense of superiority in that role.  Beloved as an actress in school productions and blessed with a wry humour, she’s secretly shy and doubts herself, particularly when it comes to matters of the heart.  She sees herself as politically aware, and very accepting of others. She is fiercely protective of her loved ones.  She enjoys a party, but only within the security of a circle of trusted friends.

Spotting Autumn on her first day on campus, Veronica quickly makes it her mission to get to know the reclusive redhead, and take her under her wing.  She sees a kindred spirit in Autumn, and she is very persistent when it comes to goals.
