Editor In Chief 

Rhonda Schlumpberger is a Midwest farmer's daughter who liked climbing to the top of grain silos to watch sunsets. Later, she enjoyed the challenges of military service and a career in molecular diagnostic sales and team management.

Intrepidus Ink explores her interest in determined individuals, conflict, and overcoming defeat: "Ut ipsi succedant."

Rhonda holds an MA from SNHU and an MFA from Seton Hill University. She's formerly a Fiction Editor at Orion's Belt Magazine, a Priority Editor at Flash Fiction Magazine, and an intern at Entangled Publishing. She reads for Space and Time Magazine.

She adores language, the flash reader's experience, compression, brevity, and urgency. Her motto is "Cut."

Rhonda is published in Misery Tourism, New Flash Fiction Review, Frost Zone Zine, Pulp Modern Flash, other online magazines, and anthologies.

Her best advice concerns coffee and SoCal: both are hot. She's on Twitter @rhondaschlumpb and @intrepidusink.

Editor

Amanda Hurley is a wearer of many hats: writer, reader, editor, translator, radio-maker, journalist, mother, partner, barista, cafe owner, and baker. And that's just this week.

Normally, you can find her wandering in the forests of eastern Germany, a boisterous Labrador in tow, searching for blueberries, wild strawberries, and edible mushrooms.

Or else she's scanning the Internet for the best in flash fiction, updating her skills with numerous courses, or following half a dozen news sites throughout the day.

Amanda is an experienced journalist and has worked in fast-paced newsrooms such as The Daily Telegraph in London, England, and Radio New Zealand in Wellington, New Zealand. 

Passionate about the rhythm of the English language, Amanda adores the possibilities afforded by flash and the techniques associated with compressed fiction.

She is thrilled to explore the innovative and intrepid world of Intrepidus Ink with Rhonda and her team.

Amanda is published in Flash Fiction Magazine, Spillwords, Elpsis Pages, and Flash Frontier. Follow her on Twitter @AmandaHurleyNet.

Editor

Ellie Jacobson lives in Minnesota with her husband, two teenage sons, and their rescued kitties, Mr. Percy and Bennie, which explains why she cherishes quiet time working on her first novel at the local coffee shop. After twenty-five years of dreaming, she decided "to go for it" by enrolling in the MFA program at SNHU to fulfill her dream of being a published novel writer and creative writing teacher.

She's an editor who adores digging deeper past the well of cliches with authors to construct unique ways to tell stories. Her approach to editing is asking, "and so?"

She holds a BS in technical communication from ASU and serves as a Priority Editor for Flash Fiction Magazine. Her words are on Medium, Coffee House Writers, The Drabble, Friday Flash Fiction, and she was recently longlisted at Retreat West.

Her day must begin with a cup of coffee (or two) and Wordle. She’s on Twitter and Instagram @ellietjacobson.
