Patrice Lawrence: Orangeboy

Patrice was born in Brighton and brought up in an Italian-Trinidadian household in mid-Sussex.  This meant great holidays and even better food.  She found her way to east London in the 90s and lives there with a partner, a teenager and a cat called Stormageddon.  She has been writing for as long as she has been reading, and sold her first poem to the Brighton Evening Argus for a quid.  She loves crime fiction, sci-fi and trying to grow things.  Her ideal mixtape includes drum ‘n’ bass, Bruce Springsteen and themes from Studio Ghibli films.
