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

Wonderful, great, simple, professional, helpful, fantastic, efficient... you pick a great work to describe a person and working relationship and it applies here. I've got several more books in the works, and Latte will be the person I choose to use.
