    Betsy Phillips is a writer from Whites Creek, Tennessee. She doesn’t actually live under a rock in a cave, but she does live under a thick layer of fur shed from a dog that once ate her neighbor’s fancy cheeseball and half her neighbor’s crackers in the brief time it took her to ask herself, “Did the dog get out of the house just then?” Her fiction has appeared here in Apex Magazine, in F&SF, and other places. Her website is betsyphillips.net and you can find her on Twitter at @auntb.
