Web design

Design books

Since my first book-editing work in 2002, I’ve written and edited several books, including Web Designer’s Reference and follow-up The Essential Guide to CSS and HTML Web Design.


Our world increasingly relies on written communication. Therefore, whether you’re creating a new website or a piece of marketing literature, the words you use should be considered an essential component, rather than something of an afterthought.

With a decade of copywriting experience, I will ensure that you don’t lose potential customers due to sloppy copy. Whatever the project, I consider well-written, engaging copy vital and will ensure you meet that goal. For more information about copywriting and editing services, email me.
