Myrna Dey is a Canadian writer, whose debut novel Extensions was a longlisted nominee for the 2011 Scotiabank Giller Prize.[1] It was the first novel ever named to the longlist through the award's new Readers' Choice program, which allowed the general public to nominate books for award consideration.[1]

A native of Calgary, Alberta, Dey studied at the University of Alberta and the University of California, Berkeley. She currently lives in Kamsack, Saskatchewan with her husband, a dentist. She has published short stories and journalism in Reader's Digest, Canadian Living, the National Post, The Globe and Mail and Maclean's.

Dey was a 2014 semi-finalist in Chatelaine Magazine's "Write for Chatelaine Contest" with a poignant personal essay entitled "Into the Storm" about helping her husband to build a new reality in the wake of dementia.
