‘Bout Time You Got Home

“‘Bout time you got home.” My mother to her sister, the rotary phone’s receiver squeezed in a vice of ear and hunched shoulder, probably a dish towel in her hand. . .”

My flash non-fiction, ‘Bout Time You Got Home, has just been published by Bloodroot Literary Magazine.


You can find it here. My piece is on p. 42, almost at the end.


A short memoir about my dad and me at Pittsburgh’s Carnegie Library will be published soon by the Fredericksburg Literary and Art Review.

Thank you for reading!

  1. Congratulations, Susan! I not only appreciated your flash fiction piece, I was also pleased to figure out what had happened to Bloodroot. Good to read you both, again.

      • I hope soon. I’m distracted by the appearance of the blog, wanting it to appear more. . .um, interesting? I’ve been spinning my wheels about that. Your question is energizing. Thanks for asking!
