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.

T. R. Siebert is a speculative fiction writer from Germany. When she’s not busy writing, she can be found attempting to grow vegetables on her balcony (not very successfully) or looking at pictures of cute dogs (incredibly successfully). Tweet at her @TR_Siebert.
Juliet Kemp is a queer, non-binary writer who lives in London with their partners, child, and dog. Their fantasy series The Marek Series is available from Elsewhen Press; the first book, “The Deep And Shining Dark” was a 2018 Locus Recommended Read. Their YA SF novella “A Glimmer Of Silver” also came out in 2018, and their short fiction has appeared in various places. In their free time, they go bouldering, tend their towering to-be-read pile, and get over enthusiastic about fountain pens. They can be found at http://julietkemp.com, or as @julietk on Twitter.
By day, Filip Wiltgren is a mild-mannered communication officer at Linköping University, where he also teaches communication and presentation skills at a post-graduate level. But by night, he turns into a frenzied ten-fingered typist, clawing out jagged stories of fantasy and science fiction, which have found lairs in places such as Analog, IGMS, Grimdark, Daily SF, and Nature Futures. Filip roams the Swedish highlands, kept in check by his wife and kids. His thoughts, email, and free stories can be found at www.wiltgren.com
