Pat Garcia
Germany
Being an American living in Europe is interesting. It was one of my dreams, and I am happy to be living it. I am a writer and singer from the heart and enjoy losing myself in my music or my writing. Living in Germany, I speak German fluently, am very good at writing and reading in the language. I am presently learning how to speak Italian, which is also helping me to recall the French language that I learned at the university. I am a voracious reader of books written in English, German, and Italian, regardless of whether the books are fiction or non fiction.
Interests: Reading, writing, singing, learning new technology, playing my piano, playing chess and running.

Country girl that she was, she didn’t understand why Paolo chose this boutique. It was way above her price range. Paolo had said he knew the owner. When they entered, a bell tingled, and from the back of the shop, a chic, plus-sized woman came out smiling. Continue reading
