Samantha grew up in a small town in Iowa but became an expat for her Canadian husband, whom she met in the Massive Multi-player Online Role-Playing Game Star Wars: Galaxies (before the NGE, of course). She’s the mother of a preschooler and twin toddlers—a houseful of girls will definitely keep her husband on his toes.
In October 2017, she was diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer. Modern medicine is amazing, which means her prognosis is good, and she’s continuing treatment indefinitely.

Flash Fiction Online‘s Founders
Jake Freivald, Founding Editor
Jake Freivald lives in New Jersey in a house teeming with life: a wife, nine kids (yes, all from said wife, no twins), two dogs, two cats, and twenty fish.
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 volunteers rallied around the project, and he would like to shut up now so you can read about them.

Lydia Ondrusek (In Memoriam)
Lydia Ondrusek is old enough to remember when flash was a dance. She writes about things that are magic and things that are real, frequently at the same time. Some people think she is a poet, some think she’s a fictioneer — but many think she is a cat. Her redheaded stepchild of a website is lydiaondrusek.com. Look under the bed at Twitter to find her as @littlefluffycat.
