In the wake of her checkered past as a theatre student, restaurant hostess, certified nurse aide, and newspaper writer, Carrie now writes novels and short stories. She lives in the mountains of Pennsylvania with her tolerant husband, charming children, two naughty cats, a not-so-bright dog, and seven really-not-so-bright chickens. The chickens do not live in the house. You can read her blog at http://www.carrienoble.com.

I love choosing names, and I use baby naming books sometimes to find them & their meanings. Names in The Mermaid's Sister came from a variety of places. I picked "Maren" because of its meaning "of the sea." O'Neill was named after a friend's neighbor's dog. Scarff is a name I got from the side of an appliance repair van I saw while on a trip. Auntie's name "Verity" means "truth"--a reference to her inability to lie. Clara was named after Clara Schumann, a 19th century musician and composer. (There's more to that story, but to be brief, the main music I listened to while writing was Brahms' German Requiem, and Brahms was said to be in love with Clara S. for many years.) Osbert, Pilsner, and most of the other names just popped into my head as I wrote. For more fun facts about the book, you can visit my blog here: http://www.carrienoble.com/2015/02/10...(less)
Carrie Anne Noble I don't really believe in writer's block...but reading good writing by others, or just plain brainstorming for ideas as to where to go next in a story…moreI don't really believe in writer's block...but reading good writing by others, or just plain brainstorming for ideas as to where to go next in a story can be helpful if I'm feeling a little stuck. I think the best thing to do is to just force yourself to keep writing. You can change it later if you don't like it!(less)

Away with the Fairies, or What Happens in November
The British have an expression, “away with the fairies,” which according to the Oxford Dictionary means “giving the impression of being mad, distracted, or in a dream world.” Which pretty much describes me on a typical November day as I’m pecking away at the keyboard writing 50,000 words for NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month).

“I hope you will have a wonderful year, that you'll dream dangerously and outrageously, that you'll make something that didn't exist before you made it, that you will be loved and that you will be liked, and that you will have people to love and to like in return. And, most importantly (because I think there should be more kindness and more wisdom in the world right now), that you will, when you need to be, be wise, and that you will always be kind.”
Neil Gaiman

“In Britain, a cup of tea is the answer to every problem.
Fallen off your bicycle? Nice cup of tea.
Your house has been destroyed by a meteorite? Nice cup of tea and a biscuit.
Your entire family has been eaten by a Tyrannosaurus Rex that has travelled through a space/time portal? Nice cup of tea and a piece of cake. Possibly a savoury option would be welcome here too, for example a Scotch egg or a sausage roll.”
David Walliams, Mr Stink

“Wishing gets you nothing.”
Carrie Anne Noble

“What though the sea with waves continuall
Doe eate the earth, it is no more at all ;
Ne is the earth the lesse, or loseth ought :
For whatsoever from one place doth fall
Is with the tyde unto another brought :
For there is nothing lost, that may be found if sought.”
Edmund Spenser, The Faerie Queene

“I am too rich already, for my eyes mint gold.
