"Resist" Announcement

Munich, Germany 1942—Hans Scholl never intended to get his younger sister involved in an underground resistance. When Sophie Scholl finds out, she insists on joining Hans and his close friends in writing and distributing anti-Nazi leaflets entitled, The White Rose. The young university students call out to the German people, begging them to not allow their consciences to become dormant, but to resist their tyrannical leader and corrupt government. Hans knows the consequences for their actions—execution for committing high treason—but firm in his convictions, he’s prepared to lose his life for a righteous cause. Based on a true story, Hans, Sophie and all the members of The White Rose resistance group will forever inspire and challenge us to do what is right in the midst of overwhelming evil. 


After much thought and prayer, I've decided on a new course of action for my novel, Resist. Being the control freak I am (at least when it comes to my books) I'm going to be publishing Resist under my imprint, The White Rose Press. Expected publication is February 22nd, 2016.  I'm a little bit excited. Just a little. =)

At the moment, Resist is under going historical editing. Last week I put it into the hands of one my editors, the director of a WWII museum. My sister and I dressed vintage for the occasion. One simply does not step foot into a WWII museum without dressing vintage.


 Also, I'm super excited because Kathryn J. Atwood, author of Women Heroes of World War II, Women Heroes of World War I, and Code Name Pauline has agreed to be an advance reader/reviewer for Resist



I thought it was about time to make an actual website for my books. I'm now ready to reveal the new site! Check out it out HERE.


Resist is on Goodreads and I'd really appreciate it if you'd add it to your bookshelf! Cover art is absent, I know. It will be forthcoming.


I'm blown away whenever I think about God's hand in this project. I could never have written it without Him. Never. I would have given up, closed the computer, said it was too hard. He placed this story on my heart to encourage and inspire others and I can't wait to see what He does with this story.
