Announcement: Martina Boone, #author of “Compulsion” joins #MOTM tonight at 8p ET to discuss #bullying…

Martina was born in compulsion_heirsofwatsonislandwhat is now the Czech Republic and moved to the United States when she was seven, and she spoke several languages before learning English. Her first year here, Her teacher made fun of her in front of the whole class for not being able to make the “wh” sound. She promised herself right then she was going to master every single word in the English language.  This early occurrence of bullying would cause her to question her relationships with authority figures, those most entrusted to shape our characters in our early days.  And she joins Dr. Peter Sacco and Todd Miller to talk about those early experiences and how her books can help teens avoid bullying.

Wrestling with words sparked an interest in writing, one that she has fully embraced with “Compulsion” and the sequel, “Persuasion“, hitting the bookshelves in October of 2015.

Compulsion, her first book for teens from Simon & Schuster/Simon Pulse, is a SIBA Book Award nominee, an RT Book Reviews Top Pick and Editors’ Best of 2014 selection, a USA Today “Must-Read Paranormal,” and a Goodreads Best Book of the Month and Best YA Book of the Month. It’s an Okra Pick from the Southern Independent Booksellers Alliance, and a Kansas State Reading Circle selection.Persuasion, the second book in the trilogy, will be released October 27, 2015.
