Lorrine Patterson was born in Guam but never got to experience that version of island life. Her family moved to Oahu, Hawaii when she was only a few months old and they stayed there until Lorrine turned 12. After watching her parents divorce, she moved to California with her mother. These experiences during her formative years helped create a lasting sense of wonder combined with curiosity for the world around her.
Lorrine earned her BS in Business Management and an MBA from the University of Phoenix. She has worked in the hotel industry, property management, and facilities management and specializes in customer service. Passionate about all she does, Lorrine stewed over the idea of writing a book for the better part of a decade. It wasn’t until the realities of pandemic life in 2020 took hold that she decided it was finally time to put pen to paper. Through the suffering and troubling times Lorrine finally discovered her true passion and purpose in life, bringing some goodness to a world in need.
Her first book, Freeing Your Heart For Love is a memoir. Lorrine is a simple woman who believes everything happens for a reason and, even if we aren’t meant to understand why, we are all guided to the right place at the right time. Armed with this theory, she approaches each new day with a contagious enthusiasm.
When she is not nestled into her favorite couch writing, Lorrine enjoys spending quality time with her family. She met the love of her life in 2017 and has never been happier. She loves quiet days at the beach and listening to her three grandchildren splash and play with the innocence only youth provides.
