I am a professional designer with 13 years of experience designing bestselling book covers. I am responsive, quick, and always seeking the best creative solution for every cover.

In addition to designing book covers across a wide variety of genres, both for traditional publishers and self-published authors, I also art direct photo shoots and create hand-lettered typography.

I’d love a chance to work with you on your cover to bring your vision to life!

The Ancient Path: Old Lessons from the Church Fathers for a New Life Today

John Michael Talbot, Mike Aquilina

People often imagine that the Church Fathers looked like their icons and smelled of incense, heroic figures wrapped in fine liturgical vestments of silk and lace, engulfed in billows of smoke from their golden censers. Yet, truth be told, even in their writings they resemble more the tattered cloak of Jesus or the dusty sweat-soaked habits of the early Desert Fathers and Mothers. Theirs is an ... read more

Kristen was awesome to work with. She was a true professional. Very responsive, efficient, and was great to collaborate with. She brought her own ideas and thoughts to the project and together we designed a great book cover. Her vast experience in my book market helped tremendously. I would highly recommend Kristen!

Kristen Ingebretson
Thanks Dean! I appreciated how you had a vision for the front and back but still were very open to my ideas and insight. It was a great collaboration!

I’m a first time author and Kristen Was a perfect fit. I explained my vision for the cover and she created 3 choices. Each were amazing, however one was perfect. She even began before our start date and ended early. I changed my mind a couple times on my back cover and she communicated immediately. I’m so grateful I found her in this website!
