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.

4 Star review of Gibbin House by Life of a Female Bibliophile!

February 9: Sunday's stop on the CTC Virtual Book Tour was off to a great start with this wonderfully written 4-Star review from Life of a Female Bibliophile...

The novel, is an historical fiction story and takes events from the past and meshes with a interesting plot. It took me a while to understand some of the historical contexts I was reading about since I wasn’t very knowledgeable about the country and the time period. Doing a little side research cleared up my confusion immediately and I was able to understand and follow the plot.  Perla is a great writer. ..READ MORE
Thanks again to Life of a Female Bibiophile for taking the time out to read Gibbin House and offer your great insights!
