MM Schreier is a classically trained vocalist who took up writing as therapy for a mid-life crisis. After a couple of years writing the requisite angry-divorcee blog (hey, don’t laugh, it’s part of the process!) a reader suggested trying a Flash Fiction contest. After that, there was no looking back.

Whether contemporary or speculative fiction, favorite stories are dark and rich in sensory details. Weird twists abound – fiction with just enough truth thrown in to make folks question. Or perhaps that’s non-fiction that’s somehow gotten twisted up in imagination.

A firm believer that people are not always exclusively right- or left-brained, in additional to creative pursuits Schreier manages a robotics company and tutors maths and science to at-risk youth. When spare time allows or inspiration is needed, Schreier can be found hiking or snowshoeing in the Green Mountains of Vermont with a spoiled Labrador Retriever.
