Overview


“Good design is like a refrigerator—when it works, no one notices, but when it doesn’t, it sure stinks.”

— Irene Au


I'm a New Yorker living and working in the scenic Berwickshire Coast area of Scotland. I have 25 years professional experience designing cover artwork for publishers world-wide. I design interiors for both fiction and non-fiction books and have also produced dual-language publications.

Recent award winning publications:
Old Ireland in Colour — Winner of the Best Irish Published Book Award 2020.
The Presidents' Letters — Shortlisted for the Best Irish Published Book Award 2021.
For both of these titles I designed the covers as well as the interior pages (see examples below)

As a professional book designer I will bring:
• Skilfulness to unravel a brief to find key creative concepts
• Impactful and dynamic design solutions
• Swift response to amendments and alterations
• Expert technical knowledge of printing guidelines and KDP requirements
• Friendly, responsive and creative service throughout the entire process
• Help and guidance for all your self publishing questions

My work was actually a ghostwriting project. In order for me to succeed, I had to satisfy my client with a specific vibe my work had to have. My knowledge in publishing only goes as far as writing. I know little to nothing about interior formatting and cover design, so I needed someone to guide me and work with me on these two things. Latte was exactly that. I sent him several photos, covers, a...

Working with Latte has been so easy and I will certainly work with him again. Communication has been simple and he always gets back to me quickly. When I saw the drafts of my book I couldn’t believe how perfect they all were. It was as if he was inside my head, but more importantly inside the head of my readers. My chosen cover perfectly promotes my story and will attract my readers to it. Than...
