“Being a Brooklyn writer, one can not help but thinking about the world – on and beyond the streets of New York, looking for a consensus, as much of it as possible.” In 1998, Longo wrote Art of the Mind, an essay that became the sung narrative for her art film of the same title; “Its focus is how our minds work lives beyond our years”. In 2005, Destination: Unknown  was about the thoughts of a depressed young man, it was produced by Richard Mazda and Rebecca Trendt under the title 7 Stories. In 2010, A Bird and Its Albatross, A Tale of Renewal took  flight with Serendipity Media Press, versing a poetic conversation – soaring the reader over an intuitive dialogue between two birds of a feather.  In 2012, this Brooklyn writer is featured in In How To Cook Like a Hot Italian Mama, by Gina Myers, where dolling out the tragedy of  the non-Italian attempt to make at lasagna.  An olive branch to non-italian, she offers her homemade recipe called the Brooklyn Bruschetta.
