Martina Boone

Martina probably doesn't need introduction. She's the mastermind (and I mean that literally) behind the Adventures in YA and Childrens Publishing blog. She started the First Five Pages Workshop with me. And she has the first book in her trilogyThe Heirs of Watson Island, BEHOLDEN, coming out soon (but not soon enough so go mark it on Goodreads). I've known Martina for a while now and I have to tell you, she is one of those people who can accidentally intimidate you with her brain power and creative process. She's supportive, brilliant, and unbelievably talented and I hope she knows how much I appreciate her!

Don't forget to leave info about someone you want me to thank with a prize.


  1. Okay gosh. Lisa!!!!! You are so, so, so wonderful! And much to kind. But thank you! And you know YOU are one of my favorite people. And I can't imagine you ever being intimidated by anyone! (Not that I would ever want to intimidate people--ack!) But you are such a sweetie, and a writer with far more talent and dedication than I.

    BEHOLDEN is off to copy edit as of Monday, so one step closer! Thank you for the shout out for that, too. And yes, I LOVE and appreciate it when people add it to Goodreads!!! I still don't know how it got there--that's a mystery to everyone--but it's so fun to see it there!

    Thank you, Lisa! For everything. You are seriously one of the most wonderful people I know! :)

  2. Yay! Great to see you being featured, Martina--and certainly much deserved.

    I must have missed the game rules. Suggest people who've inspired us?

  3. Martina, I will always remember that first night I met you at the SCBWI LA Conference and we sat talking for hours. I knew then you were going to be a friend forever. Thank you, Lisa, for introducing us in the first place. Can't wait for BEHOLDEN. I may fly out just to get you to sign my copy. xo
