Mr. Burdett has been teaching college-level English in Georgia for 15 years. He has a B.A. from Georgia State University, an M.A. from Kennesaw State University, and an M.F.A. from Georgia College & State University. He has published thirty (or so) short stories, poems, and essays in various places in the last three decades, and when his kids are older he intends to write (and hopefully publish) some more.
His wife of 18 years is an elementary school media specialist. They have two kids, one in middle school and one in elementary school, and two cats, who do not attend school at all.
