COMPULSION by Martina Boone
My Life in 8 Words
Q. What is your motto or maxim?
A. Live bold and dream big.
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. 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.
Q. With whom in history do you most identify?
A. I admire many people, but I tend to identify with historical figures I am connected to by story. The hidden character in the HEIRS OF WATSON ISLAND trilogy is Eliza Pinckney, the 17-year-old girl who ran three plantations and founded the American indigo industry. She not only created a viable crop, but the change in farming method reduced the exposure to malaria and saved many lives. She isn't the most admirable character in history, but she is one who intrigues me.
Q. What trait is most noticeable about you?
A. That's the babbling thing again. Sigh.
