A graphic designer and illustrator for over 15 years, I have moved into creating book covers. Why it took me so long to realise the love I have for this specialist area of design, I'll never know, but it's probably something to do with the fact that, as indie authors, we now live in a world without gatekeepers. That discovery combined with Procreate on the iPad Pro! (Never. Looking. Back.)

Due to my illustrative style, I tend to have a focus on historical, fantasy and sci-fi, but no genre is off-limits. I love the process and the challenges that come with it, and I'll work hard to give you the cover your book deserves.

Being an indie author myself, I can fully appreciate the effort you've gone through to get to this stage in seeking a designer. Or perhaps you're early on in your book's progress and you would rather the cover was prepared in advance of publication. Either way, I can help. I know what works and what won't in enabling you to reach your intended audience. Your cover must stand out, yet also 'blend in' to your specific genre so that it appeals to the readers you want to connect with.

I'd love to hear from you so that we can talk about how I can help your book find its fanbase.
