Welcome to GIBBIN HOUSE!

When I first started this blog about the misadventures of a nascent author, I had only a small novel under my belt, titled Gibbin House. The building that bears the name is a fictitious postwar era safe-house, as many might have existed, and the London home of my motley crew of exiles. I could not anticipate then the degree to which I would join its ranks of writers and artists, but since publishing my book in 2011, I have had the greatest privilege of opening my own art gallery and of exploring my love of the written word through visual poetry and paper sculptures. Yet much like the girl who first started blogging two years ago, I suspect I don't know what I'm doing half the time. As such, Gibbin House remains a refuge for ramblings...and on occasion a haven for little triumphs.

Closed The Cover Guest Post by Carola Perla (me!:)

Had the pleasure this week of submitting a guest post to the Closed The Cover book review website.  In it I address my motivation as an author and some ruminations on what inspired me and my work from an early age.  If you're curious to read more about what gave rise to Gibbin House and its heroine Anka, check out the rest of the post here!
