As a fiction writer juggling two pen names in my spare time, I understand the challenges that authors face when trying to sell books. I've been a web developer for over fifteen years, so I decided to focus my energy on building custom author websites that are easy to update by the author. Each site is built for the author's individual needs and I take care of all the technical details. I start each project with a Zoom chat where I clarify the author's needs and tastes then I get to work. Each author receives step-by-step videos to teach them how to use their website and add new books/series/pages, etc.

NOTE: I get booked several months in advance. The earliest I can start a new project is July 2023.

Web developer and designer

October, 2009 – Present (over 13 years)

I provide a high-touch service where I create a custom WordPress website that is built just for you. I help you integrate your newsletter sign-up form on your website, deliver your reader magnet post sign-up, retrieve and include your Facebook pixel, and whatever else you need help with, including setting up an email address associated with your domain name. You'll have a website that is intuitive to update and that helps you sell more books, get more email addresses, and help you grow your author career.


Sci-Fi (

Custom website for a sci-fi author. The #1 goal is to collect more email addresses, then sell more books. Visit to see the site live.

Awake (

Two co-authors wanted a unique website to showcase their book.

Romance Author JA Huss (

The author wanted a customized, dual-identity website. She created the design and I coded the site to match. Her site includes easy-to-update sidebar content to highlight most recent books in various formats.

Sci-Fi Fantasy Author Immortal Angel (

The author wanted a darker website that featured the nature of her sci-fi books and their particular setting.

Mike Brown (

Mike writes clean sci-fi romance and wanted the site to reflect that.

David Gaughran's website (

I worked with David to revamp his website while keeping all of his existing content. His rebranded website features separate looks for his non-fiction pages and historical fiction pages, custom blog post categories, and lots more.

Cozy mystery author website (

The author already had a specific color palette and fonts selected, so I styled the website with that in mind and created slideshow images to highlight her top priorities.

I was blown away by Caro's clear understanding of my needs based on a minimal exchange of information. She proceeded to take my feeble attempt at web design and transform it into a professional website, in record time. Before we concluded our session, she provided useful tools for me to both easily update and continue the work. I know I can call on her in future to answer specific questions, an...

Caro was wonderful to work with. She collaborated with me to determine the kind of site I wanted and then ran with the choices we made to produce a kick-a$$ website. I highly recommend her.

Caro is professional and I really appreciated how good she was with deadlines and timing, and very responsive when it came to communication. I'm a luddite when it comes to websites, and a new author, and she provided a lot more than just setting up a website. Her experience in the realm of author websites was exactly what I was hoping for when we started the project. She's also exceedingly cle...
