About the Book
About the Author
In 2016, father/daughter storytelling duo Kevin and Gillian Rhodes took on the challenge of writing 52 short stories in 52 weeks, based on
the prompts of an online writing blog. Tell Me A Story collects their
stories and celebrates their unique creative perspectives. Dad limited his
entries to 100 words (exactly), producing piercingly realistic snapshots taken
over his lifespan. Daughter preferred fantasy, sci-fi, post- apocalyptic fiction,
and futurism. Their strikingly different stories are a testament to ingenuity,
imagination, and creative commitment.
Their adventures in storytelling begin with a prompt
calling for a story entitled “A New Beginning” and end with a story entitled “The
End.” In between, they wind through an array of prompts, from a retelling of a
fairytale, a creepy story, stories about loneliness, secrets, and romance,
stories set at sea and on another planet, one told from the villain’s
perspective, another that takes place entirely inside a vehicle…. Kevin and
Gillian’s responses vary from comedy to tragedy, dramatic to whimsical,
autobiographical to fantasy. Their stories of past and future offer often poignant
and relevant perspectives on the present, often drawing on the simplest and
most profound experiences of human life.
