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 prose has been published in Grain, FreeFall, The Dalhousie Review and Prairie Fire. She teaches in Calgary at Mount Royal University. Ms. Edgar holds an MFA in Creative Writing from the University of British Columbia.
