Justine asked Lisa Schroeder:

Hi, I'm Justine I just read your book Chasing Brooklyn, and you were the only author I have encountered (yet) who write in verse novels, and it was amazing, I thought books like them were difficult to understand but yours aren't that at all. Can you share some tips on writing a verse story I'm really getting into it now? Thanks!

Lisa Schroeder Hi Justine, so glad you enjoyed Chasing Brooklyn! I have others that are entirely in verse or partially in verse, just FYI. As far as writing them, I think like anything, it takes practice. Flex your poetic muscles and have fun with it! Here's a blog post a writer friend wrote that I really like: http://carolinestarrrose.com/verse-no...

Good luck!
