Goodreads asked Phyl Campbell:

Where did you get the idea for your most recent book?

Phyl Campbell From a meme about the creation of mermaids. Then I'm adding stories because it seems to be a popular trope (Peter Pan does it, Chris Colfer is doing it, just as two of MANY examples) but also because the Pa in my story is definitely a storyteller who passed the gene on to his kid, and the young people in my story use stories to make themselves feel braver and less alone.
