I hope everyone had a good Halloween! Any fun costumes? At the school where I work the faculty did literary characters and I was Harriet the Spy.

Today it’s back to the Debs Pageant, with Jane from Kristina Springer’s debut The Espressologist. What’s the Debs Pageant? 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. So here we go with Jane!

EspressologistCharacter name: Jane Turner
Age: 17
Biography: I’m a Chicago girl, senior in high school (when I show up), and a barista at a chain coffee shop. I’m not so great with guys but I’m a really good friend!

What is your talent? I’m an Espressologist! I can hook people up based on their favorite coffee drinks.

What will you wear for the evening dress competition? How about I bedazzle my work smock? Could be cute.


Who is your escort?
My number one frat boy regular, Will. He’s so dreamy.

And now for the interview portion . . . If you could change one thing about the world, what would it be?
If I could change one thing about the world I would make good coffee affordable for all people. No more would citizens have to drink day old coffee from questionable looking gas stations just because it’s 99 cents for the big gulp size. No more would your average caffeine addict need to get a second mortgage just to afford his six extra shots of espresso in his daily Joe. If I had my way, coffee mugs would be bottomless, syrup would flow freely, and whipped cream or no whipped cream on that would never even be a question– there would ALWAYS be whipped cream. We would all live in harmony, with caffeine buzzes from sun up to sun down.

Thank you Jane and Kristina!

To find out more about Kristina and her book, please visit her website.

You can purchase The Espressologist through Amazon, or visit your local bookstore. Kristina recommends Anderson’s in Naperville, IL. Aprilynne Pike also recommended Anderson’s, so it must be an extra super fantastic Indie.
