  1. I wanted to have a mermaid in a story, but didn’t want her to be real. I also wanted to have the Lone Wolf Bridge in a story. It is a symbol of freedom of non-heterosexual love among San Angelo residents. I had read “The Angel of Odd” by Edgar Allan Poe prior to writing this story. He and I both used supernatural characters to get a point across.
