As a huge book lover myself, I'm driven by working with writers to understand what their story is about, and help convey that to readers. I know how personal this process can be for writers. You know your book inside out. It's a part of you. I can help you translate that vision into a book that communicates all of that richness in a way that even someone who's picking up or browsing your book for the very first time will understand.

For 3 years I was the in-house book designer for publisher Samuel French, where I worked on more than 60 books, across a wide range for genres from plays to romance, historical work and children's stories to contemporary literature.

Please do get in touch with me and we can discuss your book.
