If you show me yours I'll show you mine with Author Ben Ditmars


I issued a challenge to my fellow authors to bare their secrets on my blog all in the name of fun. I admit that I was a little nervous but in less than 5 minutes after I hit publish on that challenge I had takers rolling in. I've scheduled each author in order of when I received their responses. 

Up next, author Ben Ditmars:



Tell me 3 fun facts about yourself

1.) I’m a boob guy.
2.) I’m a lifelong fantasy nerd and
3.) I love cheese!

If you could bring one of your book characters to life for only one night, which one would it be, and what would you do?

I would choose 06:12 from Night Poems. We’d have a fun time rehashing that “dryer humming in the kitchen light.”

Is there anyone you’ve always secretly thought of as sexy that other people might find strange? If so, who?

The traffic girl on channel 10 news. There’s just something about the way she describes jams and congestion.

What’s the worst/oddest present that you’ve ever received?

I always try to appreciate gifts but probably these jeans I still have and never wear. They were too big ten years ago and I still haven’t grown into them.

Confession time: What’s on your ipod right now?

The Good: Spanish guitar
The Bad: Learn to Speak German by Stephan Wiesner
The Ugly:  Friends, Lovers or Nothing by John Mayer

Do you have any tattoos?

Not yet but I’ve always wanted a triforce from Zelda.

What’s your favorite snack?

My grandma used to have these chips called Munch ‘Ems that they don’t make anymore. But, wow, they were good!

What’s your ultimate fantasy?

A delicious dinner in a beautiful city and passionate love making as a woman screams out the names of my books.



Ben Ditmars has been writing for as long as he can remember. He was first published in his college publication, the Cornfield Review in 2010 and hasn’t looked back. Even for traffic.

  1. Love it Ben. Amber I know who you can give your cheese to, lol. Hope your fantasy comes true. If munch ums are like monchos, there In a orange bag and I love them. I can get them still if these are the same ones. I would send you a bag in a minute if you wanted them.
