Chris Coad Taylor

publisher and author-in-residence

JoHazel Publishing started publishing books in 2009. After a decade in the industry, the company’s direction changed from a hybrid publisher to focus primarily on services for Indie authors, as well as, providing marketing design for all businesses. We then created an additional website for our design service department under the name C. C. Taylor Design Studio and added a second website location featuring our design services.


Chris Coad Taylor is the owner/publisher of JoHazel and the company’s graphic designer, as well as, the author-in-residence. As an author, she writes fictional novels that are character-driven. Her novels are written in multiple genres like suspense/mystery, psychological thrillers, and romantic/suspense to name a few. In addition to her novels, she has a few non-fiction books published in history and knowledge-based categories.


As the creative director and graphic designer, Chris works with not only Indie authors but also, with business owners by providing design layouts for marketing. Some examples of items she has designed are an art exhibit catalog booklet, product one-sheets, flyers, signs, event announcement, plus a variety of other advertising designs, which she provides a print-ready Pdf to her clients. For Indie Authors, she has designed an array of dynamic book covers and promotional video trailers.


JoHazel Publishing can help with your marketing layouts for any kind of one-sheet for your company bio page, author bio/book promotional flyer, or a product information page.


Whether you are needing direction on a book project you have in mind or want to get marketing literature designed then the first step is to schedule a free-of-charge consultation with Chris Coad Taylor.
