Patrice is a member of the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators and her books have been translated worldwide.

Born in London, England, she moved to the United States as a child, where she spent many a night pondering the meaning of life under the canopy of stars, and she has been on a fascinating creative and spiritual journey ever since. A "seeker" and spiritual student since childhood, her quest culminated in the writing of her first bestselling book. Hers is a miraculous story: On the morning of November 11th, 1995, she was woken from a dream and an inner voice "told her" to write her first book. She did it in an hour and signed a publishing deal for God Made Easy three weeks later.

The single mother of Elijah (now grown and living nearby), Patrice lives and writes near the beach in Ventura, California, where she is currently editing her memoir (and what a wild ride it has been!), and still gazing up in wonder at starry nights.
