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.

I’m on the train. It’s early, so it’s packed with what I call, the changing of the guard. All the nighttime hotel and hospital workers and their sleepy replacements are dozing. There are two seats vacant, on either side of … Continue reading

There but for the Grace of God Go I…Mother Fucker

I’m writing this for me, not anyone who may happen to read it. I am so colossally tired of apologizing for my hearing loss. It’s to my credit, and believe me, deserve an award, that I haven’t stabbed anyone. The … Continue reading

So How They Hangin’

I heard this expression, remembering it from growing up, an old neighborhood way of saying, so how the hell are ya, as if your balls were a barometer. Since one thought inspires another, it then made me think of my … Continue reading

A Basset May Come’a Callin’

I still think of Carmela the Basset Hound as though she were a long lost sister, just one with stubby legs and long, silly ears. For those of you who never read the Carmela Chronicles, she belonged to a snooty … Continue reading

Trumpets Blare
