Dr. Rosa Maria DelVecchio is a literary writer residing in Brooklyn, Ohio, and an Associate of the University at CSU. She was asked to join our editorial team in 2011, shortly after our publication of her novella Road Rage. Born in 1960 to immigrants from Abruzzo, Rosa was raised and educated in Ohio, where she made her living by serving 10 years in private sector and over 30 in public service. During graduate school, she taught freshman English at her almae matres, CSU (MA 1984) and CWRU (PhD 1993), where she was active in poetry circles of the campus communities. She won first prize in a 1989 poetry contest by Wide Open Press (CA), and her poetry and fiction have been published in several journals since 1987. Among our best sellers is her 2009 poetry chapbook, Voices from the Castle Dungeon.
