Eva Moon: Stories that start where fairytales end

“She almost shook her head no but then asked for a Negroni too. Courage in a glass. What would he do when she told him? If she told him. She could still call it off. No. She was almost thirty-two. If she wasn’t going to die alone, she had to get past this with someone.”

Coming in March 2023: Pinocchio’s Guide to the End of the World

A new historical fantasy novel by Eva Moon

Becoming real was only the beginning…

Pinocchio got his wish, but he’s learned that there’s more to being human than having the right kind of body. Inside, he’s still the same wooden boy. In the wake of WWI, his struggle to fit into a human world and a crime of passion force him to flee the only home he’s ever known. 

After 14 years at sea and at the end of his rope, Pinocchio finally returns home to find Italy in the iron grip of fascists, and his beloved Papa, Geppetto, missing under suspicious circumstances.

The adventures he thought were ending have only just begun.

Pinocchio’s perilous journey to find Geppetto leads him into Nazi Germany, where he discovers a secret about his own magical origins­—and an unexpected enemy planning to use that secret to enslave humanity. 

This is a tale of unforgettable friendships, profound love, self-discovery, and ultimately, what it means to be human.

  • Pinocchi-oh no no no

    I won’t keep you in suspense. I loathed Disney’s Pinocchio remake. Now, admittedly, I’ve spent years thinking and writing about Pinocchio as an allegory for the human struggle to find authenticity and meaning. I wrote a play about him (“Geppetto’s Funeral”) and my novel, “Pinocchio at the End of the World” is coming out in […]
