Author Patrice Lee

My name is Patrice Lee, and I get so passionate when it comes to putting pen to paper; writing is an avenue that allows me to freely express myself. Losing yourself in the midst of storytelling allows an indescribable escape. As a woman, living her second act, I am learning everyday how to navigate this amazing journey we call life. I am a 55 year old woman who also happens to be mom to five amazing grown children. I had five children in three years -- I cheated -- two sets of twins plus one. I have a son, Ryan, who was born with Down Syndrome. It’s pretty special going from raising five children to having five best friends. I am the proudest Nanni in the world to six beautiful grandbabies: four granddaughters and two grandsons. The aging process has caught me a little off guard, but I’m so thankful for this journey. Having grandchildren has been the most incredible experience there is. As I write about the aging progression, which has turned into a major therapeutic mechanism, I find myself in the middle of putting together a beautiful poems book reflecting the many seasons of life. I am originally from New Jersey and now enjoy enthusiastically living in the South. Follow me on this journey on Instagram @FabulouslyFreeat55; or email me at
