Rhonda Eikamp grew up in the heart of Texas, fell in love with words and languages and moved to Germany. Her story-writing started with a Nancy Drew novel written at the age of ten, but only really took off after 1996, with stories in venues such as Space & Time and The Urbanite. Since rebooting in 2012, she has published stories in Lady Churchill’s Rosebud Wristlet, The Colored Lens and Daily Science Fiction. She lives with her husband, two daughters and a cat, and spends non-writing time translating legal texts for a German law firm or photographing the idyllic places of her youth on trips back to the States.

Contrasting images in her life (let’s see – which is Texas and which is Germany?):

  1. Rhonda –
    I recently read your story “Three Rights Make a Left” in LCRW and wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed it. I think I really, deeply understand (as much as another person can) what you’re getting at here. I’ve been working with a series of stories of my own for about a year and a half which take place in a similar realm where the boundaries of reality and imagination, the internal and the external, the physical and the purely psychological, are unclear (if those boundaries even exist?). Is it like your world at all? Not hardly. Let’s call them manifestations of similar basic impulses in parallel universes. Anyway, this is just a quick note to say ‘thanks!’ for that story. It gives me some hope that there are others out there who think — well, if not along similar lines, then at least on resonant frequencies.
    All the best.
    – Chris

    • Hi Chris, Thank you. “Three Rights Make A Left” came from repeated dreams I had years ago when I first started writing. Labyrinthine caves only I knew the way through. I understood it to be a symbol for the subconscious I had to work my way through to arrive at Story. It took years before I found a way to write about it, though. I wish you all the best with your stories – those boundaries are where they will thrive.
      Rhonda
