About Gary

Willie and Gary at a pumpkin patchGary Metivier has always considered himself a storyteller. His love of writing probably started in the eighth grade when he was supposed to be paying attention to his teacher, Mrs. Dillon.  Instead, he was creating fictional characters that went on adventures that pulled in his classmates who would whisper for the “next page” as they secretly passed his work from desk to desk when their teacher wasn’t looking.

 The shy boy, who was the tenth of twelve children, had found a creative outlet and there was no looking back.  Years later, Gary is still telling stories as an award-winning television news reporter and anchor. 

Gary lives in Davenport, Iowa with his wife Pam and two young sons, Josh and Adam. Have a question for Gary? Send Gary an email.
