Writing has always been a dream and a passion for Patrice which started at the tender age of nine. Starting out writing short stories, she found a new passion for poetry at fifteen. Since then Patrice has been writing poems of life’s situations and reality in this world. Her poetry has taken her places that have made her think about publishing her first book.
Her dream came true in May of 2012 when Patrice published her first book, a poetry book entitled “A Collection of God’s Word and Motivation” As a book of poetry and words of encouragement, she wants to be able to speak to her situations through the art of poetry.
While continuing her penmanship of poetry, Patrice published her second poetry book the following year in 2013 entitled “Lyrical Passion Tears from my Inkwell” Dealing with personal situations, she wants to tell her story and write about situations that others can relate to. Her third book, a children’s book called “Patricia’s Trip to the Hospital,” was published in 2014. As a survivor of Sickle Cell Disease, she decided to write a children book series called “Sickle Cell Kids” in honor of children living with this deadly disease. Her new children’s book, “Patricia’s Guardian Angel” was published May of 2016. Also a short story called “For Kindle’s Sake” was released in February 2016 and is planning on making it a three-part series.
Besides writing books, Patrice created her own magazine in 2014 called “F.U.S.E.” Starting off as a small newsletter, she decided to expand her dreams and turn it into a full-blown magazine. She wants to empower, inspire, and motivate people that have been hard times. By writing uplifting articles, Patrice is sure to touch several lives. In 2016, she created her business, Lil’ Woman on a Mission, LLC which offers services for people such as editing, writing and layout/design services for authors and business owners in need.
She is a 2009 graduate from Virginia State University with a Bachelor’s degree in Arts in Mass Communications. In her spare time, she enjoys writing, blogging and making jewelry. Patrice is always looking for new opportunities to better herself and her business. Her dream career is to be involved in Marketing, Promotions, Advertising and Public Relations. She is planning to have several other books published later in 2016.
