What is Gilded Tales?

This is a place for stories. 100% original stories that spark imagination and inspire a sense of wonder. Adventures, myths, mysteries and fairy tales. We endeavor to provide a unique and well-told tale with every post.

Stories usually take anywhere from 5 to 15 minutes to read. Most if not all will come with an original audio recording by yours truly if you want to just hit the play button and relax.

Who is Gilded Tales meant for?

This site is geared toward parents, typically those with children aged 5-12. I “focus group” every story on my 6-year-old twins, but anyone can enjoy the content found here.

How often are new stories published?

About once a week. Sometimes more, sometimes less.
