When I was a kid, I loved urban legends- they really freaked me out. They still really freak me out. But one of the great things about them was that each person telling them changed some part of it as they told it. It became a little more personal in the telling. As an adult, I wanted to share that aspect with the world and turn some common urban legends into real stories… you know, flush them out and give them real characters. When I wrote Don’t Be Afraid: 13 Urban Legends Retold (which is about to be released as an audiobook too! ) I had no clue how freaked out I was going to be as I wrote them all out at night! Writing them out really made them come to life more and creeped me out so bad. But that’s the point of reading horror, right? What’s your favorite urban legend?

Do you know the “dog licking the kid’s hand”/”people can lick too” one? That one’s pretty disturbing.
