I was interviewed in Elena Hartwell Taylor’s “The Mystery of Writing” blog.
People often ask me why I’m so fascinated by Pinocchio. I’ve written a play and now, a novel about him. I don’t feel that I chose Pinocchio so much as he chose me.
The original story ends when he gets his wish to be a real boy, and the assumption is that he lived happily ever after. But it’s a funny thing about wishes. Can you ever really know now what will make you happy in the future?
… I’ve wondered what happened to Pinocchio after he got his new body. Was it all he imagined it would be? Did it satisfy the longing in his heart?
