I was so lucky that my publishers contracted Nikkita Cohoon to design the cover of my book. Nikkita asked me to describe the book’s essence—both in words and images. A writer herself, she read the manuscript, seeking what made it tick. After several lengthy conversations, she gave us six genius cover options to consider. Once we chose one, she continued working with the publishers and me to create something we were all thrilled with. Now, everyone who picks up the book compliments her work. I hope that readers do judge my book by its cover.
