For our campfire tale this month, we have an original piece written and performed by Kristi Peterson Schoonover. 

Kristi Petersen Schoonover is fascinated by urban legends, probably because there were many associated with the small town in upstate New York in which her childhood summer camp was located. Her short fiction has appeared in many magazines and anthologies, and her traditionally published books include the short story collection, The Shadows Behind; she was the recipient of three Norman Mailer Writers Colony Residencies and holds an MFA in Creative Writing from Goddard College. She serves as a co-host of the Dark Discussions podcast and as founding editor of the dark literary journal 34 Orchard. Follow her adventures at
