Goodreads asked Howard Parsons:

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

Howard Parsons Urban Mermaid started out as a story I told myself in order to go to sleep. I've done this ever since I was a kid. Well one night, I had the idea for a Mermaid who popped up from under a dock one lazy Sunday afternoon and scared the bejeebers out of this unsuspecting human guy. Things just grew from that point on.
