Lanie Goodell is an American author and single mother. She is currently an avid flash fiction fan and loves the challenge of writing an entire story in just a few words.

Though her professional history is varied, ranging from teaching to enforcement activities, Lanie channels these experiences into her writing to create a plausible experience for the reader.

The mother of a teenage son, she enjoys spending time exploring his interests. They can often be found haunting the science museum or delving into the mechanics of how things work (especially redstone contraptions on Minecraft). She loves that her son is interested in the horror genre and he has sparked much of her recent creativity.
