I provide many design options and I am a great lover of typography. I am an award winning book designer with years of experience with major book companies such as Disney, Harper Collins, Little Brown and Houghton Mifflin Harcourt.

I read the manuscripts and/or synopsis and work with the authors to create a cover that satisfies the current market trends and also reflects the emotional thread of the story.

I execute the author's vision but also provide other concepts/ideas that the author my not have considered or thought of. I provide many options/concepts and enjoy the challenge of reworking to satisfy the author's wishes. Nothing makes me happier than a happy author.

Work experience


Apr, 2017 — Present

Over the course of my career, I have had the privilege of working with many high profile authors such as
Art Spiegelman; Amos Oz; Emma Donoghue, Edward Hemingway; Rick Riordan; Linda Sue Park, Sharon Flake and Rosemary Wells.

I give the same attention to the up and coming authors, as I do the established names. Nothing delights me more than collaborating with authors to bring their stories to the world.

Christine was a joy to work with. She made me a book cover that I am proud of and she should be too. I will definitely be back to Christine for my next book cover.

If I could give 10 stars I would! This is the first time I've used Reedsy so the first time I've hired Christine. She's knowledgable, friendly, and her expertise gave me the book cover of my dreams. It's not only high quality but it's stunning! I will definitely hire her again for book 2. In fact, we've already discussed it.
