About Patrice Marrero

Patrice Marrero

Patrice Marrero

Patrice Marrero is a freelance writer who calls Massachusetts home. In her free time, she can be found curled up with her dog and a good book or paddling a kayak through the curling waves of the sea, depending on the season. Patrice may have a minor shopping addiction, but she offsets the cost by finding irresistible deals that are too good to keep to herself. She is currently working on her first novel, and expects to have it done sometime this century.
