The tenth child out of eleven in a family that took in hundreds of foster kids, Patti Buff learned early on that if she wanted some peace and quiet she better put her nose in a book. Her favorite stories feature people on the fringe of society. Those whose stories, when listened to, are rarely believed.

She is an Undiscovered Voices winner (2016), received an honorable mention for the New Voices Award at the 2019 Capital Crime Festival, and earned an honorable mention for the Amazon Publishing New Voices Award 2021. A native Minnesotan, she currently lives in disgustingly beautiful Bavaria, Germany with her family.

Her most recent adventure is working towards a Masters of Arts in Creative Writing at Manchester Metropolitan University, Manchester, England while scribbling down scenes for her new novel on the side.

She is represented by Hannah Sheppard of DHH Literary.
