Smashwords Interview

How do you approach cover design?
I wanted something whimsical to reflect the light tone of the book. It shows the sheer joy of a father playing with his daughter. She wears a tiara and cheers her father on in whatever adventure is to come! Behind them are blue skies and green fields.

I think it captures the book perfectly: I love reading and writing fantasy stories and old comic books. The cover shows a father playing a gallant knight protecting his royal little princess. The art captures that adventure feel without being too cartoony. The cover fonts also show that whimsy and joy I hope you find in the book, too.
What are your five favorite books, and why?
Lord of the Rings by JRR Tolkien, are you surprised? The others might surprise you: Path to Power by Robert Caro, London by Edward Rutherford, Mornings on Horseback by David McCullough and A Christmas Carol by Dickens - I read that one every weekend after Thanksgiving to get me in the holiday mood!
