"Cover art for Mile's Song by Alice McGill, a novel for young readers. Going back about five or six years, I recall suddenly beginning to get calls for book covers. I noticed they were always for young readers, never books for adults. I'm still not sure if this was a result of my style, or my perceived reading level. Regardless, I loved the process of reading a story and creating a visual to be its face. This is a great book about a little boy who escaped the South through the underground railroad. I think the best covers portray the mood and tone of a text, not always a specific moment in the story."
