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.

Melanie Lau is a senior at Emerson College working towards a BFA in Creative Writing. She often writes realistic fiction, but she dabbles in fantasy, sci-fi, and poetry. Her work has previously been featured in the literary journal Catfish Creek, as well as a number of school publications, including Black Swan, Stork, and FlawlessMag. She studies in Boston, and she often bikes along the Charles River, swerving to avoid the geese who waddle onto the paved road. But she grew up in Honolulu, and she finds herself back at home every year, at the beach, taking a warm nap on the sand.
