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.

“Are you going to call her?” Gianluigi turned and moved away from the window. He regarded his dear friend and partner. “I don’t know yet,” he answered. “I know she’s not asleep. She never sleeps when I’m away on duty. She catnaps,” and he grunted before he continued, “It’s her way of battling the fear of losing me.” Continue reading
