The graphics were taken from the pre-press files for the books and photos supplied by the author (including for the header.) The color scheme was taken from the two book bindings.
Really, you can’t get more basic than this site. The author is my client for several commercial websites and she asked if I could quickly put a site together (just a few hours) for her sideline as a children’s book author.
This website was built on a WordPress mobile-responsive theme, so if the author should ever choose to expand it, the upgrading process will be straightforward and simple.
