Wren's name

How Wren Sullivan, the main character and narrator of For Ever, got her name is a bit random. With many of the other characters in the book, I really toiled over their names, trying to figure out something appropriate. But with Wren, I happened to be on www.babynames.com and the "Name of the Day" happened to be Wren, or "small bird."

Having grown up with an unusual name, I felt a connection ... and it also seemed to fit my character, who has always felt a little off-center.
