   Harper Stone grew up in the mountains of Colorado, where his parents regularly subjected him to myths, folktales, banjo music, Icelandic sagas, and other archetypically infused forms of punishment. He rebelled first by going to art school in Santa Fe, then by making a pilgrimage to Ireland in search of long-lost relatives in the Leprechaun family. However, eventually he acquiesced to his upbringing, and has sustained himself financially for 9 years by working as a ‘Quest Leader’ at a summer camp in Colorado called Renaissance Adventures. In this position, he leads groups of children on imaginary adventures, engaging them with interactive stories, riddles, puzzles, and foam-sword battles. Now living in Bellingham, he hopes to soon subject children here to a similar fate.
