The Snarly Yow is a strange creature－a hybrid of the paranormal and corporeal－that causes pain and fear in its victims without leaving any physical evidence. It is often confused with the Devil Dog and paranormal entities, like specters. Though rarely encountered by humans, the beasts can be found in the Shenandoah Valley, Blue Ridge Mountains, eastern panhandle of West Virginia, western Virginia, Tennessee, western North Carolina, northwestern Georgia, northern Maryland, southern Pennsylvania, and New Jersey.

I'm a pretty quiet person from Southern Ohio that loves monsters, animals, stories, and history. I moved to Fairbanks, AK to study art and received my Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in 2017, afterward moving to & working in El Paso, TX. Currently, I reside in Lucasville, OH.
I enjoy outdoor activities - like hiking, kayaking, and sightseeing - reading, drawing, throwing pottery, sculpting, playing video games, and playing dungeons and dragons with my friends. ~Kristen Puckett - Appalachian Illustrator, Folklorist, & Ceramicist
