Liam Fitzgerald – Web Developer

Creating unique websites for authors from multi-million best-sellers like Anthony Horowitz to the new and rising stars of self-publishing.


Designing and developing creative websites for authors and the publishing industry for almost 20 years. I've helped self-published authors and multi-million selling writers in the UK and US to define their online presence and connect with more readers.

All sites are fully responsive and built on the world's most advanced, flexible and secure CMS, ExpressionEngine 5, allowing clients to edit their own content easily. Managed hosting is provided so that the author can concentrate on the important stuff - writing! Additional features include forums, social media feeds, photo galleries, review sections, regional cover variations and events calendars.


"For well over a decade Liam Fitzgerald has been running my website completely effortlessly…at least for me. He actually designed it and then completely re-designed it when we felt it needed updating. I love everything he does."

Anthony Horowitz O.B.E. - Author

"I think it’s vital that authors have a little bit of the internet they can call their own, somewhere people can visit to find out more about them and their books. Working with Frequency on my own website, I learned a hell of a lot about what generates traffic and what doesn’t. Liam patiently answered my millions of idiot questions - and built a site that is simple and classic and, importantly, lots of fun to use. I’m thrilled to bits with it!"

Mark Hill - Author

"Couldn’t be happier with the process and the results. Liam is a through-and-through professional who brings his considerable talent and expertise to the process, who’s clear and prompt in his communications and who’s open to any suggestions. An absolute pleasure to work with…"

Peter Besson - Author

“As a person who is completely design-blind, and technically challenged, I was very grateful for Liam’s patience and skill in creating the perfect website for my reading audience. The process was smooth, enjoyable and felt like a real collaboration. Liam truly took the time to understand my preferences and those of my readers, meaning the end result was a real crowd pleaser. Since the new site launched, I’ve been delighted with the feedback and know of at least one person who has asked Liam to build their site because of seeing mine. It can feel confusing choosing the right person to help with something like web design, but I can unreservedly recommend Liam for their skill, dedication to getting the right result, and for going the extra mile.”

I honestly don't know why you would hire anyone else. Liam exceeded my expectations and knew what I wanted before even I did. My website is beautiful, elegant, and clean, the polar opposite of my chaotic ADHD brain, which would have made a mess of everything. It's really easy to use too once he set it up. Liam's super easy to talk to and walks you through every step with patience and thoroughne...

I'm so glad I 'stumbled' over Liam and can only recommend him to those looking for a professional website designer. He was very responsive and although I didn't initially know how I wanted my website to look, he came up with the perfect suggestions. I'm more than happy with the end result and hope to work with Liam again in the future.

Liam is the consummate professional. His sensitivity and creativity are a gift. The best commendation I can offer of him, however, is his tenacious generosity with respect to process. This project has evolved over time. It has developed in chapters and seasons. He has been a faithful conversation partner and problem solver at each stage of the game. And there is more to come. Highly recommended!

Liam not only can design websites, but his technical knowledge and quick response to communication is unparalleled — something you don't see much these days. It's good to know there's someone available to design and keep things up and running since I don't know how to do it myself.
