Author Essay

It’s always fun to read stories that take place in your home town.  Creating a cover is no different.  So when I was asked to give the Amanda Cross novels a new cover look, it was a welcome project. I really wanted to work with photographs that showed a hint of Manhattan (when applicable), as well as evoking a sense of mystery. This was done by cropping the image in an edgy way to as not give away too much of the scene, and then turning the image into a negative (like film). I think the look is  effective, fresh, and mysterious.
