Stephanie Flint (formerly Stephanie Bibb) graduated from the University of Central Missouri with a Bachelor of Science in photography and a minor in creative writing. She merged the two interests into book cover design and photographic illustration, but she particularly enjoys writing speculative fiction. She lives with her husband, Isaac. Together they plot stories in the form of table-top role-play games, and enjoy the occasional cosplay.
Online, Stephanie often goes by the nickname of SBibb.
"1000 Words" is a collection of ten short stories, each approximately one thousand words in length. They range from science fiction and fantasy, to adventure and horror. Each short story is accompanied by its own book cover. Each of the stories are available for free elsewhere, but here they have been collected into one volume. This was a capstone project meant to merge photographic illustration with creative writing.
