Alice Burdick was born in Toronto and is now undergoing the process of life. She writes poetry and has done so for a few years, published by small, independent presses. Has had hands in both dough and money, for pay. Enjoys feeding peanuts to squirrels and blue jays, although secretly roots for the blue jays. Allegiances do shift. Simple Master is her debut collection of poems. Alice lives in Halifax, Nova Scotia.
