Jake Frievald

Jake Frievald

Flash Fiction Online’s Founding Editor Jake Freivald lives on Long Island, New York in a house teeming with life: a wife, eleven kids (yes, all from said wife, no twins), two dogs, and a cat. Lack of qualifications never stopped Jake from taking a job, so when he saw the need for a professional flash-only ‘zine he created Flash Fiction Online. He was astounded when a team of amazing volunteers rallied around the project.

Suzanne Vincent

Suzanne Vincent

Suzanne Vincent joined the Flash Fiction Online team early in 2008 as a lowly slush reader, then served as editor-in-chief of Flash Fiction Online for 9 amazing years.  Since handing the reins over to the supremely talented and capable hands of Wendy Nikel at the tail end of 2020, Suzanne has filled her time with a few dozen of those “I’ll get to that one of these days” projects.  She is blessed to live at the foot of the Rocky Mountains in Ogden, Utah, where she raised a husband and three children, and where she and her best pal, Paisley (an Irish Terrier), make a nuisance of themselves on the extensive network of trails.
