COMPULSION by Martina Boone
My Life in 8 Words
Q. What is your motto or maxim?
A. Live bold and dream big.
Q. What 3 personal qualities are most important to you?
A. Kindness, loyalty, and intellectual curiosity. I haven't always honored those as I should, but I am getting to appreciate them more with every passing day.
Q. Who is your favorite fictional hero?
A. Usually the one I am writing about or reading about in any given moment. The ones I keep coming back to are Lizzy Bennett, D'Artagnan, Lyra from Phillip Pullman's Dark Materials, the elephant child with his "'satiable curiosity, and Puck Connolly from THE SCORPIO RACES. As far as sexy heroes? I do love Eight Beaufort, probably because I know him better than any hero I've ever read about. Also, there's a love interest coming up in book two of HEIRS OF WATSON ISLAND that I'm half in love with myself.
Q. What trait is most noticeable about you?
A. That's the babbling thing again. Sigh.
Q. If you could be anywhere in the world right now, where would you choose to be?
A. I try very hard to be happy wherever I am, but I love to travel. The next stop on my bucket list is an African safari, and I always look forward to going to Prague, which is my favorite city.
