She shared that after the launch of her PARDONABLE LIES, which was launched about a year before publication, she was asked how she imagined the cover and what images would best reflect the story. She Sufficed it to say that for a long time, she had considered Andrew a mind-reader – she sent him old photos and a paragraph or two in which she tried to describe the cover as she saw in her mind’s eye. He always creates that picture exactly with a skillfully executed woodcut. It’s a gift.

Jaqueline, on selecting the cover of her recently published book, For THE WHITE LADY, also shared that she imagined making it something extraordinary that reveals what the novel is about and her friend Andrew this time helped her too, mentioning it she stated, “I knew we needed a “look” that was different from the Maisie Dobbs’ series novels, so I asked if he could use the wood “engraving” technique he employs to create wildlife images – a very delicate process requiring such skill in his craft. I could not have been more thrilled with the result – I consider Andrew a genius! And I’m far from being the only one!”

And this time, Her friend Andrew again sent her an email with his designs for the new British stamps to commemorate and honour King Majesties Charles III in his Coronation, which she shared on her social media handle added that they are stunning and timeless. She wanted to share them with people there.
