- “I Should’ve Known Better” By Judge Burdon
- On an unseasonably cool July morning in Chicago, equivalent to Dickens’ David Copperfield , Judge Burdon was born on a Friday. His mother theorized it was so he would be in time for weekend festivities. His interest in the predominance of the written word inspired his study of English Literature. He attended Universities in the United States, London and Paris , dedicating his life’s scholarship to the study of Victorian Novels and Authors. His writing career to date has been devoted primarily to poetry and songwriting. He is presently engaged in finishing his book “Imitation of Myself.” A non-fiction story encompassing his experiences as a drug runner for a Mexican Cartel. Judge celebrated his 65th birthday last July and lives modestly in Costa Rica.
