Bookshop in July 2016

I spotted my design and illustration for the The High Places hardback edition in the shops. I’m particularly proud of this one, so it was a joy to see it out in the big bad world…And orange is so the colour right now!

When the Floods Came Featured in the Stylist

My book cover design for When the Floods Came was featured in the Stylist magazine. (Issue 24th February 2016, A Woman’s Place is in the White House.) It was in the regular section, Book Wars. The battle was against The Maker of Swans by Paraic O’Donnell and it won!
