Cindy Pierce

Cindy Pierce

• I first met Cindy in the mid-1990s when I photographed her wedding at her parents’ Etna, N.H., inn. Years passed: Cindy and her husband took over the inn and she needed help publicizing her new adventure in comic storytelling. Since then, Cindy has become a popular public speaker and published author who talks to young people about sexuality and their decisions around it.

• After doing a refresh of her WordPress-based website, incorporating videos and clarifying the navigation for the audiences she reaches, we brought her blog back into the fold. I’m very happy to see Cindy’s voice and point-of-view in print.

• The site uses a GeneratePress template that works across all devices.

Gretchen LaSalle

Gretchen LaSalle MD
• Gretchen LaSalle, a doctor based in Spokane, Wash., approached me to build a website in preparation for the publication of her first book. It accommodates Dr. LaSalle’s regular blog in addition to videos and science news related to her passion project – vaccines and immunizations.

• The website is WordPress-based, built on a GeneratePress template and adapts to browsers on desktop or laptop computers, tablets or phones.

Mary Cappello

Mary Cappello

• A few years ago, I designed a web site for Swallow, Mary Cappello’s book about the work of Chevalier Jackson and his collection at the Mütter Museum in Philadelphia. We eventually added her other books to the site.

• Later, we started fresh with a WordPress shell from Graph Paper Press to blend the work of two other sites (and added the above content as well). It’s dynamic, changing to fit the size of the screen the reader is using (computer, tablet or phone). It also has the option to add a blog.

Nicola Smith

Nicola Smith

• After taking down her editing website a few years ago, I helped Nicola Smith come back with a simpler and better version that highlights her work – including an upcoming play about women veterans – and also can incorporate a blog down the road.

• The tablet- and phone-friendly website uses a GeneratePress template that we customized, and also includes SSL security. It’s great to see Nicola getting the word out about her work because I’m a huge fan (and her husband!).

Jill Grimes

Jill Grimes

• I have been working with Jill Grimes for some time now. An energetic family practitioner in Austin, Tex., Jill has recently published The Ultimate College Student Health Handbook, a follow-up to her successful book Seductive Delusions: How Everyday People Catch STDs.

• We have melded her older HTML/CSS and Blogger websites into one WordPress website, using GeneratePress for its structure. It is now mobile-friendly and one-stop shopping for Jill’s latest writing and media appearances.

Christine Montross

Christine Montross

• Author Christine Montross is someone I first met when she hired me to photograph her civil union in Vermont. Christine’s website was initially set up to promote her well-received book Body of Work, a meditation about being a student in the anatomy lab at medical school.

• Working with a copyrighted design Christine put together, I did the HTML and CSS coding to bring it to website browsers. Since its debut, we have built out the site to reflect her new work and reviews.

Colin Hester

Colin Hester

• Colin Hester came to me via his agent, the wonderful Malaga Baldi in New York City. Colin needed a website to promote his new novel Death and the Butterfly.

• Using the GeneratePress template, I created a simple WordPress-based website that adapts to work on all devices.

Jennifer Shu

• I was first introduced to Jennifer when she was a local pediatrician for a mutual friend’s children. Now living in the Atlanta area, Jennifer is an energetic doctor who is also an author, a regular on CNN Health and the ReachMD podcasts.

• The site features feeds from her blog and Twitter pages.

Louis Phillips

Louis Phillips

• After seeing the work I had done for one of my clients, prolific author and poet Louis Phillips asked me to create a similar site that highlights his writing and photography.

• With navigation at the top and bottom of each page, the site is separated into categories and uses the simple photo gallery treatment I’ve used on other sites.

Finding the Doorbell

• As a spin-off from her stage show, comic Cindy Pierce and her friend Edie Thys Morgan co-wrote the book Finding the Doorbell. They needed a website to promote their how-to sex book.

• The site has a chapter excerpt, book signing listings and media clips.
