Martina Boone was born in Prague and spoke several languages before learning English. She fell in love with words and never stopped delighting in them. She’s the author of the Heirs of Watson Island series, and the founder of both AdventuresinYAPublishing.com, a Writer’s Digest 101 Best Websites for Writers site, and YASeriesInsiders.com, a Tumblr site devoted to news, giveaways, and insider secrets of much-loved and up-and-coming YA series.

From her home in Virginia, where she lives with her husband, children, and Auggie the wonder dog, she enjoys writing contemporary fantasy set in the kinds of magical places she’d love to visit. When she isn’t writing, she’s addicted to travel, horses, skiing, chocolate flavored tea, and anything with Nutella on it.

Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. Live bold and dream big.

Q. What is your favorite occupation, when you’re not writing?

A. Reading.

Q. Which living person do you most admire?

A. There are so many, including every soldier and first responder who selflessly serves others every day. But I think I have to say Malala Yousafzai. I think she is incredibly brave and I admire her stand on education for girls and women.

Q. What trait is most noticeable about you?

A. That's the babbling thing again. Sigh.

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.
