Former Dancer and Award-winning Author Paddy Eger Opens Spring Ballet Season for YA Readers with
“Like these young dancers, new adults often face challenges and disappointments and are pushed to their limits as they strive for physical, mental and emotional tenacity,” says Eger. “84 Ribbons presents a balance between the world of ballet and the everyday world that waits just beyond the spotlight.”
A retired teacher, trainer and emerging new voice in YA Fiction, Eger began honing her craft in 2000. After her 2011 breakout award-winning nonfiction title, Educating America, Eger is launching her fiction career much like she began her early years of life —with her love of dance. At the tender age of three she took her first dance lesson and over the next seventeen years she performed in recitals, area functions, musicals and a World’s Fair. With her own ballerina fairy tale, Eger writes with lyrical prose to choreograph an uplifting, realistic story that will endear ballerinas, young and old, around the world.
A 46 year resident of Edmonds Washington, Paddy and her husband, Rich, enjoy travel in the United States and internationally and are avid supporters of the arts in the Greater Seattle area. They enjoy spending time with their adult children, Brent and Christine, at their summer home on Hood Canal.
