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. If you could acquire any talent, what would it be?

A. Dancing. I would be an amazing dancer. All kind of dancing. Tap, tango, breakdancing, everything. I'd be the don of all things dance. For the moment I don't really dance. If you asked me tomorrow the answer might well be different.

Q. What’s your greatest fear?

A. People's excuses for disrespecting one another.

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

A. Getting lost/early evening drinks

Q. What do you regret most?

A. The adoration that I inadvertently give to people I wish to be considered equal to, then finding that some presume themselves to be superior. It makes me feel abused but I think I have been at least partly responsible.
