Fairy Tale Review Interview

Many thanks to Managing Editor Joel Hans and Fairy Tale Review for asking me some great questions about automatons and dementia as part of their "Pins and Needles" series on the Fairy Tale Review blog.
"For me, the uncanniness of wind-up toys and automatons is that they enable the fantasy of our own reality—I am an independent, self-sufficient individual with the agency to determine my own future—while also undermining that fantasy."
My story "Wind-Up Toy" is in the current issue, the Mauve Issue, and you can read an excerpt of it below the interview.
