Gabe Gregoire – Contributing Writer

Gabe began his writing career at a Portland, Maine city A&E paper. Surrounded by pros, he soon learned (by osmosis or otherwise) how to hook an audience, keep them interested, and deliver a “call to action” that would generate results. When the business was sold, Gabe found that the same principles held true in his ensuing freelance work—everything from pop- culture fluff pieces to full-length novels—even if said action was simply the reader’s being receptive to the thrust of the article or the theme of the book. Writing for “Gardening for Wildlife” comes naturally to him as a man who spent his boyhood on a back-to-the-landers trust, weeding and harvesting when he wasn’t roaming the untracked woods.

Gabe lives in Carson City, Nevada with two lovely housemates.
