Susan O’Neill is the author of two books: the fiction collection Don’t Mean Nothing (Ballantine Books, UMass Press and, currently, Serving House Books), and a slim volume of mostly-humorous short essays, Calling New Delhi for Free (Peace Corps Writers Books).

She co-edited Vestal Review, the oldest continuously-running journal for flash fiction, from its beginnings in 2000 until 2020, and has published stories and essays in a fair number of literary magazines, virtual and print. She was nominated for the Pushcart twice, in fiction and in non-fiction, was once listed as an Honorable Mention in Best American Non-fiction, and has come this close to winning a few prizes, the latest being a Michigan Review essay contest.
