Explaining the Name

It occurs to me that I never explained what "fauxklore" means.

You have to parse it as "faux" + "klore" which makes it pronounced like "folklore." Except it's less folk than faux-k. It's a word I made up a long time ago (i.e. more than a decade) to describe some of the stories I tell. They sometimes start out as actual folk tales. But they tend to morph and I often look back months later and am astonished at how little of what I tell is actually in the traditional story.
