Willa Gibbs is a gifted, accomplished writer, researcher and author.
This is my personal search for a talented, underrated, poetically beautiful writer and a truly remarkable woman.
I could find very little information on Miss Gibbs and her novels.
It is my mission to scour the internet, archives and all available sources, to compile every possible shred of information.

Willa Gibbs Young Authoress at 14

From the Chester Times, November 23, 1931 written by Lilian Campbell
"Writing books seems to be the world's most popular past time, and today's folk are beginning to write 'em young.
  For instance, Willa Elizabeth Gibbs, 14, Woodland, Cal., high school freshman, has just completed writing a 70,000 word manuscript novel based on the French revolution. Willa has read much French history and has turned out a story that critics say may be published. It is to be submitted soon.
  Willa wrote poetry when she was seven, and is ambitious to become a professional writer.  The novel was written when she was 13, during the summer following her graduation from grammar school at Woodland. Her mother, Stella Gibbs, is county public administrator."
