Patti Edgar is a writer and educator driven by curiosity and a desire to make the difficult easier to understand. Her first middle grade novel, Anna Analyst, came out in the spring of 2021 (Yellow Dog/Great Plains). Kirkus Reviews called the novel "a droll, deftly executed debut."
An essay on her struggles to learn a second language was included in the anthology Waiting (University of Alberta Press) and her short stories have been published in Grain and Prairie Fire. A former journalist, she now teaches aspiring young reporters in Calgary at Mount Royal University and the AWCS. Ms. Edgar holds an MFA in Creative Writing from the University of British Columbia.
