Gabe lives in the western suburbs of Chicago with his parents, brother, sister, and beloved dog, Kodak. He started writing for fun as a creative outlet. After hearing of the Dream Scribers program, he was enthusiastic about learning the process of book creation- from idea to publishing. Gabriel is also a percussionist and enjoys playing the xylophone, drums, and piano, among other instruments, in his free time.
