"I am thrilled with the job you have done! The poems are beautifully laid out ... it looks splendid!" - Merryn Williams, Poems for the Year 2020
We're the team behind The Book Typesetters and you'll normally find us in Newark, Nottinghamshire, though you may also spot us by the sea in Dawlish, Devon.
I love chatting to publishers and authors about their books and the stories behind them. One of my favourite authors is Terry Pratchett and I feel honoured to have met him at the last Discworld convention he attended.
I also love dancing and when Nat and I got married in 2010 we choreographed our own Salsa wedding dance.
I'm a fan of logic puzzles and games too. When playing board games, I'm more likely to win a logic one whereas Nat tends to win those requiring strategy.
I'm passionate about making each book look its best and creating a final book that both you and your reader will enjoy.
Over the years I've taught myself to code and so I work exclusively on the eBooks, making them as sleek as possible, and have created this website (I hope you like it).
While reading Creative Writing at University, I got to interview my favourite author, David Mitchell, regarding his book, Cloud Atlas. Later I met him in person when Rachael and I were living in New Zealand.
I love reading and can usually be found with a pile of books beside me. History and comedy are my favourite types of books. I also call myself a bird nerd. Owls and penguins are my favourite.
I love being outside playing sports, climbing, or riding my bike. I like to sketch almost anything or watch the trains with an ice cream in Dawlish. I'm building my own model railway too.
I love animals. Horses are my favourite, but I like all animals. I also love to dance like my mum, and we often have a disco in the lounge.
