Consultant in the Hot Seat – Olivia Constantinides

Which literary figure would you be?

I would have to be Cleopatra, as depicted in Shakespeare’s Antony and Cleopatra. Cleopatra is powerful, passionate, charismatic and beautiful. Although she has a tragic end, she goes out in style and her eyeliner is on point!

If you could have written any book that exists now, which would it be?

The Bible. I would have edited it heavily and removed all the passages that encourage bigotry and discrimination against others. I would also have rewritten the Ten Commandments and given people more fun rules to live by.

If you were given the chance to have one superpower from any book/comic character, what would you have?

I’ve always thought it would be cool to have chameleonesque powers and the ability to transform into anything or anyone at will, so a bit like Changeling from X-Men or McGonagall’s transfiguration spell in Harry Potter. This power could be used for good or evil…

What book are you reading at the moment and what do you think of it?

I am currently on book three (page 1918 of an epic 2664!) of the Liveship Traders, a fantasy trilogy with all the staples of magic and dragons as well as serpents, pirates and talking ships. There’s a good variety of characters, locations and plot lines. The first book sets the scene and introduces you to the characters and the action really gets underway halfway through book two, but it’s worth the wait if you can persevere!

True fact: My hair is almost a metre long. It should develop super powers soon…
