About Susannah Bianchi

I'm just a girl who likes to write slightly on slant. I've had a career in fashion, dabbled in film and to be honest, I don't like talking about myself. Now my posts are another matter so I will let them speak for themselves. My eBooks, A New York Diary, Model Behavior: Friends For Life and Notes From A Working Cat can be found on Amazon.com. Thanks.

Good Training

So here I am on the Number 6 at 4: a.m. on a Saturday, headed downtown to an early job. One can’t help but be impressed by the New York City subway system, even when it misbehaves, being the Concorde … Continue reading
