Nicholas DelloRusso is currently enrolled in Adelphi University’s MFA program. When not at school, he’s pretty much a vagabond, crashing with family and friends somewhere in Brooklyn, Long Island, or Staten Island. He’s had three pieces of flash fiction published by Reflex Fiction—one of which published in volume two of their yearly print anthology. After graduating, he plans on traveling, writing and making films.
