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.

New Sun has used both my individual product shots and theme group shots. Their web designer added logos and print.

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.


Oh how I love waterfalls

I’m not sure when my wish list 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’ve had never counted how many I’ve seen until the end of 2018, but I do count myself blessed to be able to see them.

133 and counting. ( I think)

I’ve started adding them here on Flickr so I can sort them alphabetically.

Keep in mind I liked being in the woods before I got into photography quite as much and both of those before starting this blog on WordPress. That said, it’s been years since we’ve traveled, so the farther the pics get from NC the worse my photos will look. Also since I hurt my shoulder what I am able to do has drastically declined.
