#TuesdayswithTaryn Martin King, #Author Jack Hunter- Secret of the King

Tuesdays with Taryn
Martin King

Help me in welcoming children's adventure book author, Martin King, to Tuesdays with Taryn. I read Jack Hunter- Secret of the King, to my 9-year-old daughter earlier this year and we both loved it. We're eager for the 2nd book to come out- Jack Hunter- The French Connection. My daughter was insistent that we read a bit each night at bedtime and as the story grew more intriguing, there were times she was on the edge of her seat, her eyes wide as I read. Definitely a great book for young and old(er) alike! 

What book(s) most influenced you as a writer? Tintin

What book do you read over and over again? Jennings

Tuesday Trio-
1)      Movie- Back to the Future
2)      Music- Suede
3)      Decadent Dessert- Anything Chocolate

What’s the most interesting or bizarre bit of trivia you’ve learned from researching for a novel?

Novel on your Nightstand:
Who/what are you currently reading? An Autobiography by my grandad.

Whom would you cast as your Hero/Heroine if your book became a movie? It’s a bit difficult to say seeing as it is a children’s adventure, but if we could go back in time and make someone young again, Rupert Grint for sure.
