In my alternate life, I am a writer. As Tess Pendergrass, I have published a number of historical romance and romantic suspense novels. I have recently returned to my lifelong love of children's books and am currently working on a mega-epic vampire saga set in Florida for young adult readers. At least I'm having fun.

More importantly, my experience as a writer has given me a unique perspective on website design from the other side of the desk. At Far Shore Design, I strive to address the creative needs of my clients, to bring their voice and vision to a new medium on screen.

One of the things I learned from my grandmother was to make the most of wherever you are. This has been a valuable lesson, since the Coast Guard has moved my husband a number of places I never expected to live. But it also means I know there's always more I can make the most of. More things I can learn. More of a difference I can make. I'm excited to have the chance to do that with my web designs.
