Suzanne Vincent is the editor-in-chief of Flash Fiction Online. That’s what people think anyway. Actually, she’s really a pretty ordinary middle-aged woman packing a few extra pounds and a few more gray hairs than she’s comfortable with. As a writer, she leans toward the fantasy spectrum, though much of what she writes is difficult to classify. Slipstream? Isn’t that where we stick stories when we just can’t figure out where else they go? Suzanne’s first professional publication was right here at FFO, published before she joined the staff: “I Speak the Master’s Will,” — a story she’s still very proud of. While she doesn’t actually have time to blog anymore, she once did. You can still read her ancient posts on writing at The Slushpile Avalanche. Suzanne keeps a house full of kids (3), a husband (1), and pets (too many to number) in Utah, USA. Yes, she’s a Mormon. No, there isn’t another wife. Mormons haven’t actually practiced polygamy since the 1890s. Too bad. She’d love to have another woman around to wash dishes and do laundry.

Nancy Moir lives between cornfields on the edge of Ottawa, Ontario, with her husband and five cats. When she was young and idealistic, she dreamed of being a novelist, but technical writing was a better provider, so she and creative writing broke up for awhile. Recently, a fellow writing friend encouraged her to start again, and it has been love ever since. Her first published story was featured in the 27 Stories: The Winter 2018 Owl Canyon Press Hackathon Contest Winners anthology. She is thrilled to see her second published story, “Godomatic,” on Flash Fiction Online. She is currently working on a novel.
Aside from writing, Nancy is passionate about the natural environment, food security, and organic farming. When she is not writing, she can be found riding a bicycle around the countryside or happily weeding one of her many vegetable gardens.
