In the world of design books there are no Grishams. A good selling book in our industry is the equivalent of an abject failure in mainstream circles. That said I thoroughly enjoy writing and crafting well thought out creative resource books.

It’s been said that anything worth doing is difficult. When it comes to the process of creating a book it’s long, hard, and at times painful, but it’s also a lot of fun and very rewarding as well.
