COMPULSION by Martina Boone
My Life in 8 Words
Q. What is your motto or maxim?
A. Live bold and dream big.
Q. What is your biggest pet peeve?
A. Right now? The lack of objectivity in the news and the idea that people are getting more of their news from sources that share their own viewpoint. I feel like as a society, we are losing some of the bridges between each other, and that leads to less sympathy and empathy as well. It's why I love that kids still devour books. Fiction in print and on the screen provides a common denominator we desperately need.
Q. What do you regret most?
A. I stopped writing for twenty years. I wish I hadn't.
Q. If you could acquire any talent, what would it be?
A. Singing. I'm tone deaf, but I love to sing. It's an ugly combination.
Q. What’s your greatest flaw?
A. I have so many! Babbling, probably. It comes from fear, and that's another long story.
