Donnée Patrese was born a hopeless romantic in
Gary, Indiana.

As very young child she would spend all of her time reading books and getting lost in her own imagination. She would often find herself "finishing" books that she read in her own words. She just couldn't bare to let the story end. It was at this point she decided she wanted to be a published writer.

Most people realized writing was in her blood.
Knowing she wanted to write Donnée thought she could use her creativity in a different setting. She received a B.A. in Journalism from Butler University and spent a short time as a reporter for
the Post Tribune in Gary and Merrillville, Indiana.

Though reporting was very interesting, Donnée felt her creative heart was being smothered and the life of a reporter no longer appealed to her. After giving birth to her daughter she decided to focus on her writing.

Donnée is a member of Delta Delta Delta Sorority and the Co-Owner of First Draft Publishing LLC.

She is currently working on Diown and Dirty and anticipates the book will be released in the Fall of 2012.

She currently lives in Indianapolis with her husband and three children.
