Isabel Quintero is a writer, poet, teacher, wife, friend, sister, daughter, granddaughter, aunt niece, and a bunch of other things. She lives in the Inland Empire, where she was born and raised by Mexican immigrant parents and Mexican immigrant granddparents; the hospital where she was born in was converted to a Lowe's hardware store. That's how long ago she was born.

She learned to love reading and the written word from a very young age when her mother used to read to her Amelia Bedelia. That love was fostered by teachers and professors throughout her schooling and she is sure if they hadn't boosted her ego for all those years she would have never dared letting the world see what she had written.

A lot who Gabi is, is who I was at her age; though she is a lot braver than I would have been. I was really shy around boys and had a hard time talking to them beyond the realm of friendship. A lot of the story is taken from incidents I knew or heard about in high school, college, as a teacher, and in everyday life, so while the story is entirely fictional, a lot is based on real occurrences.

Quotes by Isabel Quintero  (?)

“Poetry helps heal wounds.
Makes them tangible.

At the poetry reading I read
a poem.
A prophecy I wrote down.
Almost couldn't go through with it.

But it came out
hurried and hot
and by the end
my tongue was on fire.”
Isabel Quintero, Gabi, a Girl in Pieces

“And if anyone has trouble understanding that, well, they can kiss my ass.”
Isabel Quintero, Gabi, a Girl in Pieces

“Why is every mom's concern about sex? There are more important things in life, like school, careers, poetry, books, ice cream, or learning how to make the perfect chocolate cake. It's so damn frustrating.”
Isabel Quintero, Gabi, a Girl in Pieces
