K.B. Carle is an editor for FlashBack Fiction who lives and writes outside of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. She earned her MFA from Spalding University’s Low-Residency Program in Louisville, Kentucky. Her short fiction has appeared in CRAFT Literary, Rhythm and Bones Press, CHEAP POP, Jellyfish Review, Milk Candy Review, and elsewhere.
K.B. writes about women in all their forms, whether they be human, animal, plant, machine, a combination or something in between. She writes about the treatment of these women, their anger, yearning, passions, and secrets. Women who are runaways and alcoholics in the form of puzzles, women who are trapped within their narratives, or micros dedicated to their internal monologues. She hopes that this compilation of stories will one day form her debut flash fiction collection.
When she is not writing, K.B. enjoys spending winters huddled next to her beloved space heater and summers in search of inspiration during family road trips. She is also a fan of video games, turtlenecks/mock necks, art, Disco, R&B, and varying shades of the color blue.
Some of her favorite authors include: Carmen Maria Machado, Dorothy Allison, Colson Whitehead, Min Jin Lee, Kathy Fish, Lang Leav, Octavia Butler. Cathy Ulrich, Tillie Walden, Angie Thomas, R.F. Kuang, Tomi Adeyemi, and Emil Ferris.
She is currently reading the curious incident of the dog in the night-time by Mark Haddon, and The Light Source by Kim Magowan.
