Patrice Lawrence

  • 4 stars across 25 books
    Patrice Lawrence is a half-Trinidadian writer born in Brighton. Her first published story, Duck, Duck Goose was included in the Decibel Penguin Prize Anthology. She  is currently working on a longer novel for children, and we are looking  forward to reading more from this talented young writer.
