I spent the last few weeks working with Meri on my book cover and illustrations. Now, that it's over I consider her more of a friend and I'm speechless on her work. She made sure every detail was perfect and to my liking, she stayed up late making sure it would be done and she was a dream to work with! Your book or project couldn't be any better hands with Meri!
