My research for WHITE ROSE included trips to Munich and Ulm, Germany, with visits to archives and sites, as well as stacks of published books about Sophie Scholl and the group in German. There aren't a ton of books written or translated in English, but there is a wealth of information in German, and reading and comparing sources was immensely interesting.(less)

I just taught a workshop about this very thing, because verse is actually a great way to show description. My advice is to make it small, short, and specific. Looking at photos or images and then imagining how your protagonist would see them is a great way to try this out.(less)

“I close my eyes and pray
that the world will
somehow change.

But I know it isn't
going to change
on its own, so I know
I must pray
for the courage to
bring it about.”
Kip Wilson, White Rose
