I can walk to this wonderful snippet of paradise in only a few minutes. My dog and I love greeting people on the boardwalk and enjoying the fresh ocean air.

Back in my office, I can usually be found working on book covers, or websites, or PowerPoint presentations, or newsletters, or articles. And there’s nothing I’d rather be doing.

Book Cover Express is an award-winning book cover design service that I started back in December of 1999. Since opening, I’ve created more than 2,500 book covers for indie authors, self-publishers, small presses, university presses, larger publishing companies, life coaches, business professionals, corporations…you name it.

Since I also own NonfictionBookCoverDesigner.com people sometimes assume that I only work on nonfiction covers, and while they have become something of a house specialty, I still regularly design book covers for fiction authors. In fact, one of my historical fiction covers was recently seen face-out on the shelves at a Barnes and Noble.

I have been so very fortunate and privileged to work with the authors and publishing companies I’ve designed books for. My clients have been featured on television and in major print publications including, Oprah, 48-Hours, People Magazine and the Today show.

I now work with a small but mighty team who have allowed me to expand my services to include interior book layout, and website design. So, it’s no longer “me” and “my” and “I” but rather “our.” And that’s a good thing.
