Cynthia Flood (b. September 17, 1940) is a Canadian short-story writer and novelist. The daughter of novelist Luella Creighton and historian Donald Creighton, she grew up in Toronto. After attending the University of Toronto she spent some years in the US before moving to British Columbia in 1969. Her short fiction has appeared in many Canadian literary magazines and has been widely anthologized. She has been active in many socialist, feminist, anti-war, and environmental groups, and in the faculty union during her years as an English instructor at Langara College. She has also taught creative writing in Simon Fraser University's Writing & Publishing program. Flood is a member of the Writers' Union of Canada, PEN, and the Federation of BC Writers. Her two collections of short stories are <em>The Animals In Their Elements </em>(Talonbooks 1987) and <em>My Father Took A Cake To France</em> (Talonbooks 1992).
