Basically, PR Garcia is a crazy, not-too-gray-haired old lady who loves Science Fiction. She combines this love with her knowledge of whales and the possibility of Europa containing life into a new sci-fi saga.
P. R. Garcia was born during the winter of 1951 in Monroe County, Michigan, the youngest of three children. She attended Western Michigan University, where she majored in zoology. While living in Michigan, she became an award-winning basketweaver, carrying on the tradition of her maternal grandmother, Margaret Dark Feather. In 2008 she moved to southern California and became a volunteer at the Birch Aquarium at Scripps Institution of Oceanography and a guide on the Gray whale touring boats. The following year she joined the Whalers, a dedicated group of volunteers from the San Diego Natural History Museum of San Diego, California, whose love of the Pacific cetaceans and other marine life off the shores of California matched her own. As a guide on the Hornblower and Flagship whale-watching boats, she introduced people from around the world to the wonders of the world of the Pacific cetaceans. In 2012, she combined her knowledge of whales, her love of science fiction and the belief that life exists in the oceans beneath the ice shield of Europa, n, to create a new trilogy. It is the story of an alien race from Europa that has lived in our deep oceans for thousands of years. Using legends and known ancient landmarks from Earth’s past, she wove a story of intrigue, mystery, magic and adventure. In 2014 Ms. Garcia added three more books to the story of Europa. In early 2015, she began to tell Europa’s son, Prince Enok’s, story. In 2016 she moved back to Michigan and started writing the tenth book in the saga.
Now for a more traditional overview: PR Garcia was born the winter of 1951 in a rural town in Michigan. As the youngest of three children, she had to find ways to entertain herself and learned at an early age how to use her imagination. With her trustworthy dog at her side, the two spent many hours in the backfields and along the creek battling aliens and saving the world. Her love for reading brought her to new worlds and faraway lands. Nothing was impossible.
After high school, she attended Western Michigan University and majored in zoology. She married in 1971 and became the mother of a beautiful daughter in 1979. She divorced in 1983 and supported her daughter by working as a supervisor for the State of Michigan. She retired after 31 one years and in 2008 moved to southern California. Needing something to do with her time, she volunteered at the Birch Aquarium at Scripps Institution of Oceanography in San Diego as both the receptionist and as a guide on the Gray whale touring boats. The following year she joined the Whalers, a dedicated group of volunteers from the San Diego Natural History Museum of San Diego, whose love of the Pacific cetaceans and other marine life off the shores of California matched her own. On the Whale watching boats, she introduced people from around the world to the wonders of the world of the Pacific whales and other wildlife.
One day she learned that astronomers believed that beneath Europa (Jupiter’s ice moon) exists a living ocean that might contain simple life and NASA was hoping to send a mission to the ice moon. She was so excited about the possibilities that she was sure she had died and gone to heaven. But then she started to wonder why life on Europa had to be simple. Why couldn’t it be intelligent, sentient, or even superior to ours? Combining these ideas with her knowledge from Whale Watching and her love of science fiction, she wrote the EUROPA trilogy. It is a retelling of Atlantis. Upon completing the trilogy, Ms. Garcia realized there was much more of Europa's story to tell and write three more books to turn the trilogy into the Europa Saga. The Saga offers alternative explanations not only for Atlantis but for the legend of Puma Punka, the Band of Holes, the Nazca Lines and more.
But she wasn’t done. There was still more to tell about the Waters’ family. Wishing to do her part in stopping global warming, deforestation, species-lost and ground/water pollution, she wrote a three-book sub-series to the Europa Saga. The books address these problems while continuing her story line.
In 2016, Ms. Garcia moved back to Southern Michigan and started working on the tenth book in the Europa Saga. This one takes place on Mars and involves the fifth generation of the Waters family.
Ms. Garcia has woven a story of intrigue, mystery, magic and adventure. The Europa Saga is a story of survival, adventure, revenge and the truest love. It is perhaps the only multi-generational sci-fi thriller covering five generations of one family over six thousand years.
