Martina Boone was born in Prague and spoke several languages before learning English. She fell in love with words and never stopped delighting in them. She’s the author of the Heirs of Watson Island series, and the founder of both AdventuresinYAPublishing.com, a Writer’s Digest 101 Best Websites for Writers site, and YASeriesInsiders.com, a Tumblr site devoted to news, giveaways, and insider secrets of much-loved and up-and-coming YA series.

From her home in Virginia, where she lives with her husband, children, and Auggie the wonder dog, she enjoys writing contemporary fantasy set in the kinds of magical places she’d love to visit. When she isn’t writing, she’s addicted to travel, horses, skiing, chocolate flavored tea, and anything with Nutella on it.

Author Revealed

Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. Live bold and dream big.

Q. What trait is most noticeable about you?

A. That's the babbling thing again. Sigh.

Q. What are your 5 favorite songs?

A. Right now? Prince's "Purple Rain," Jeff Buckley's "Hallelujah," Bob Marley's "By the Rivers of Babylon," Faith Hill's "Breathe," and Daughtry's "No Surprise." Also anything epic and heartfelt. I'm a sucker for historical songs that have survived either because they're about an event or emotion that's too meaningful to be forgotten, or because they are so good that they've worked themselves into the history and mythology of a group of people. Those kinds of songs become more than the sum of their parts.

Q. If you could meet any historical character, who would it be and what would you say to him or her?

A. Adolph Hitler. I'd like the opportunity to kick him in the ass.

Q. What is your favorite occupation, when you’re not writing?

A. Reading.
