Mark Pulham is dressing the naked hand

Mark, where are you from?
Where are I from?  I was born in the middle of Happy Valley, Provo, Utah.

If you could travel to any time in history, when would you visit?

Time Travel..hmmmmmm  I would like to make a visit to family members in the 30’s and 40’s.  I like the music, movies, and fashions of that time.  The history was kinda rough and many things about it were way to sad, but I would like to visit family of the past.

If you could have dinner with any of your characters, which ones would be? What food would you serve?

Dinner with a Character from our book?  Probably Al Reed and Paige Turner.  They are just your average kids and would probably have something simple to eat. Maybe a Pizza, Mac & Cheese, Peanut Butter Sandwiches, or a bunch of finger foods.

If you could travel anywhere, on earth or off, where would you go?

Travel anywhere on earth or beyond. Since it’s winter and cold here, anywhere warm.  An island with white sandy beaches.  A place where time just ambles on and you could just relax and enjoy nature hikes and sunsets.

Describe your dream writing spot.

My Dream Spot for Writing?  I’ve enjoyed writing in a library surrounded by books.  All that written word energy seems to help my brain.  When the writing bug hits, I’ll write where ever it knocks me over.
How did you find enough commitment to complete your book?
When writing a book you need to have a partner with an enormous cattle prod.  Or someone that is constantly inspiring you and keeping your creative juices flowing.  And on our book, Amy was the Fire and Dallin, and I were the slow burning embers…that sometimes went out.  But Amy kept fanning the fires.

What is the name of your book?

What is a hand without a puppet?  Naked!  And when you put that puppet on your hand, tah dahhhh  you’re dressing the naked hand.  So what better title.  We hope that no hand will find itself naked for long, and that soon, hands around the world will be dressed and ready for puppet play.

What kind of research did you do for this book?

The research we did for the book came about through reading books and more importantly, living, doing, and failing, and doing and doing…with over 30 yrs of puppetry experience I would hope I’ve learned something and could share that knowledge with others.
