Martina Boone
Q. What’s your greatest flaw?

A. I have so many! Babbling, probably. It comes from fear, and that's another long story.

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. If you could be any person or thing, who or what would it be?

A. I'd like to be a better writer. Also a younger one. :)

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.
