My Life in 8 Words

Author Revealed

Benjamin Constable
Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. Never say with eight words what you can say with nine. I don't really do mottos.

Q. Who is your favorite fictional hero?

A. Harvey the invisible white rabbit rom the film Harvey

Q. Who is your favorite fictional villain?

A. Muttley from The Wacky Races. (There seems to be an animal theme emerging. I've never noticed being particularly interested in animals before.)

Q. What is your greatest achievement?

A. Getting published. Damn it was tough but now it's happened nobody can take that away. Hurray!

Q. If you could meet any historical character, who would it be and what would you say to him or her?

A. I don't really think like that. I'd love to meet anybody from history and I'm sure I'd have loads of questions and comedy advice like never travel on a ship called Titanic but choosing one person and not another doesn't seem interesting to me.
