She is also the editor of two anthologies from SkyLight Paths—Next to Godliness and Bread, Body, Spirit—as well as two published by Sounds True—The Self-Acceptance Project and The Dharma of Dogs.

Before focusing exclusively on publishing, Alice acquired books and developed scripts for film and television, including A Few Good Men by Aaron Sorkin (TriStar), Dune by Frank Herbert (SciFi Channel), A Season in Purgatory by Dominick Dunne (CBS), and JFK: Reckless Youth by Nigel Hamilton (ABC).
