COMPULSION by Martina Boone
My Life in 8 Words
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’s your greatest flaw?
A. I have so many! Babbling, probably. It comes from fear, and that's another long story.
Q. What is your favorite occupation, when you’re not writing?
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.
