OUR COMMITMENT 

We help experts find their voice, share their stories, and publish books that connect people, create community and foster compassionate conversations to bring us together  — no matter the diversity of our faith, race, nationality, politics, or gender.

We remove ourselves from people, projects, and situations that create division, isolation, and separation.

It’s really that simple.

 

CATHY DAVIS
Founder/CEO
Creative Publishing Consultant, Designer, Imagineer
#1 Amazon International Bestselling Author

Cathy believes we all have a story to tell and it is through our stories that we are able to find our voice, share our wisdom, and make a difference in the lives of others. Wisdom not shared is wisdom lost forever.
 
Books are in Cathy's DNA and have always played a big role in her life — from reading, writing, and making books in grade school using construction paper and brass brad closures — to her first job right out of college at a small-town printing company. With a short stint as a window-display designer for Macy’s, she later oversaw the marketing and window display for a midwest regional high-end bookstore. 

Moving to St Louis in the mid-1980s, Cathy spent
 the bulk of her career as a Designer and Creative Director of Corporate Communications for a global financial institution. Managing a team of 18 designers and print specialists, they supported the new business efforts of the Trust Division, providing custom sales presentation books for relationship Managers around the globe.

Cathy founded Davis Creative, LLC in January of 2004 after corporate downsizing. What originally began as a boutique creative services agency, is now known as a sought-after publishing industry leader, providing concierge publishing services for authors throughout the US and a handful of foreign countries.

 

JACK DAVIS
Art Director, Book Designer, Typography King
Chief Cook and Dessert Chef, Superhero Aficionado

Cathy’s husband, Jack Davis, joined her in August of 2008, after almost 20 years as an Art Director at Fleishman-Hillard Public Relations.

Jack has a passion for rescuing our clients from "books gone wild" and his attention to detail serves as the Batman Beacon, making certain each book gets the custom attention it deserves.

“Style Sheets rule. Yada, yada (or is that "Yoda, Yoda?).” — Jack Davis

 

CHEWY (CHEWBACCA) DAVIS (AKA: Mr. Happy)
Barketing Director and Senior Security Sentry

Chewy joined Davis Creative in May of 2018 when he was rescued from the Greenville, IL / Bond County Humane Society. At less than 24-hours old, he, his Mom and his 3 litter mates were rescued from a hoarding situation, finding help and healing in safer hands.

His 20-pound perspective on life now comes with the double-joy of loving windows. The first joy being the advantage of a top-floor clear view of the neighborhood for monitoring the comings and goings of his neighborhood friends. The second joy being his excitement for the occasional road trip — more specifically — the joy of drive-through food windows. Did you know they actually HAND YOU FOOD!?

 

ALWAYS IN GOOD COMPANY

With Cathy and Jack each having worked in the global communications industry for over 30 years, the depth of their connections to other communications specialists runs deep. Davis Creative only hires people they know, like and trust — most of whom have actually worked with, or for, Cathy and/or Jack in their former careers.

The vetted tribe of professional ghostwriters, writing coaches, editors, proofreaders, designers, and illustrators hired to help with your book have all had successful careers prior to joining the creative community at Davis Creative — bringing decades of experience, expertise, and communications knowledge to help you bring your author brand and book to fruition.

As Professional Publishing Consultants, their team walks aspiring authors through the self-publishing process, offering guidance, options, and suggestions along the way  — sharing industry best-practices and helping them avoid self-publishing pitfalls.
