About Alice

Born in northern England, Alice Fitzpatrick was raised in Oakville, Ontario, where she began to write as soon as she could pick up a pen.  After abandoning the idea of becoming the youngest person to win the Governor General’s Literary Award for Poetry, she earned both her BA in Fine Arts and BEd in English and Drama. Along the way she received her MA in Interdisciplinary Studies.

Now living in Toronto, she has worked as a guidance counsellor and teacher of English, ESL,  Drama, and Public Speaking, while publishing short fiction and personal essays and teaching creative and therapeutic writing.

The author of the Kate Galway mysteries set on an island off the coast of Wales, Toward the Pebbled Shore was a finalist for the 2013 Malice Domestic Unpublished Novel Award, and This Thing of Darkness was a Top 10 Finalist for the 2015 Killer Nashville Claymore Award.

When she is not writing, she can be found either singing, performing, or reading mysteries with her cats.
