There's only one artist I trust to do

my book covers, and that's

SAMVEL HVMPHREYS.

A conservation illustrator who works
primarily in rare and dying ecosystems,

Sam raises money to save those ecosystems
by selling prints of his work. 


We've collaborated on all 4 of my book covers,

and each has been more elaborate than the last.

The next—the India novel—
shall be even greater still.
