In Secrets of Truth & Beauty, Dara is a former child pageant star. So, in order to introduce you to the wonderful authors and characters of the 2009 Debutantes, I am hosting a Debs Pageant on my blog.

wingsToday’s contestant is Laurel from Aprilynne Pike’s Wings.

Character name: Laurel Sewell
Age: 15 . . . or 19. It’s very confusing.
Biography: I am a young faerie who has just discovered what she is. I am still trying to figure out just what my role is in an ages-long feud between the trolls and the faeries but my friends David and Tamani are helping me on my path!

What is your talent? Well, it depends. My inherent talent is making things: potions, elixirs, serums, that kind of thing. But I haven’t really learned how to do it yet. But I love to sing and play my guitar too!

What will you wear for the evening dress competition? I think I’ll wear the same thing I wore to my Halloween party this year, a sky-blue formal with beaded trim and a mini-train.

Who is your escort? Right now? My best friend, David. But Tamani’s trying to edge his way in there. it’s so hard to choose!

And now for the interview portion . . . What color best represents you and why?
Blue. Blue is the color of my petals when I blossom each Fall. It represents my faerie heritage and reminds me of who I am and the mission I’ve been sent to complete.

Thank you Laurel and Aprilynne!
