Gabby is the eternal child and is quite shocked when someone ensues that she may actually be categorized as an adult.
Although she has yet to jump in to the wild world of parenthood she feels as though she is racking up tons of experience with her 5 nieces and nephews and their shenanigans. Gabby was a quiet, observant child who would journal about everything and everyone around her. And now as an “adult” she finds real life still makes for the best writing.

My name is Melinda Rother – I was lucky enough to be born and raised in Quincy. I went to college in Sacramento, lived in Reno a short time, but came back to Quincy to raise my sons.
I am in my 18th year of being the Assistant Clerk-Recorder-Registrar of Voters for Plumas County. I am not a writer; this is my first attempt at it. I wrote from my heart because I was talking about one of my favorite subjects; my boys.
I am married to my best friend and we enjoy year around outdoor activities, such as snowmobiling, wave running and traveling in our RV.
I am very happy to be a part of this project.
