My name is Richard De Fino.  I'm a 33 year old writer and columnist living in Buffalo, NY. I was born and raised in the Bronx NY and had my fair share of unfortunate events throughout my childhood.  My goal here is to use my written words as my own personal therapy and through that, I hope that my past and current struggles will resonate with my readers and make them feel less alone. When I am not writing, I enjoy spending time with my wife Andrea, our dog Zeke, and cat BeBe.

I am a Columnist for Feminine Collective and a serialized writer for I've also been published in Buffalo Black Book, Two Cities Review, Purple Pig Lit and forthcoming in Nameless Digest in the fall of 2018
