Oh how I love waterfalls

I’m not sure when my wishlist for my birthday started including hikes to see waterfalls. I’m guessing it stems from my love of being in the woods I inherited from my dad. Sadly we didn’t trek all over the beautiful western NC mountains much together. If I could turn back time, we would! My mom, well my mom will walk but she’s not into hiking, hills and being in the woods. My hubby isn’t into photography at all but he’ll go hiking with me. He knows my limits better than I know them myself and I always feel safe in the woods with him.

I’m not sure how many I’ve been to. I may work on a list if I ever get caught up on other things.

That’d make a cool cover!

I design book covers and shoot photos for use on covers. Details can be found on

Technically, most of my photos that have not been used on another author’s cover can be purchased.

Here are some that I thought would make a great cover.

I’ve purchased and invested time learning photography, Photoshop, InDesign, OnOne, Topaz, Nik and Lightroom in addition to materials for color, and type. I can shoot realistic photos or shoot and edit completely out of the box creatively. I appreciate you considering me for your book cover design and photography needs.

These clay creations with personality were created by Jean Greeson. I couldn’t help but think they would make wonderful book characters. She may also be offering custom designs.

I hear her husband Donald is a wonderful illustrator. I know several of my author friends who inquired about having illustrations for books- and he came to mind.

A sampling of my photos

I’ll be adding others this year as I get a portfolio together. In the meantime, you can find me on Viewbug or Flickr

I like to shoot just about everything except people (that one good looking man is my hubby so I don’t mind pointing my camera at him. Here are a few that have won contests.
