Are you baffled by where to start in creating a simple, modern website that supports your business goals?
Do you aspire to top quality website design, focused on your needs... but without breaking the bank?
When you work with me, I’ll use my technical expertise, design talents, and marketing skills to create your crisp, compelling website. As well as a custom design to reflect perfectly who you are, your website will connect you with your ideal visitor on a personal level.
Together, we’ll build a website you’re proud of.
I designed and built my first website back in 2000. Since then, I’ve watched with curiosity and excitement as the technology for getting online has become more straightforward and more affordable. However, not everyone has the skills to create a first-rate website, and that’s where I come in.
My website is my online linchpin, and I can't imagine life without it.
But… when talking to other entrepreneurs and authors, I was dismayed to find you’re often overwhelmed by the challenge of setting up your own site.
Not only can I create your ideal online home, but I’m ready to dispel some of the myths around how difficult – and how expensive – websites should be.
- With me as your friendly accountability partner, your project will move smoothly from start to finish. I’ve made the mistakes already, so you don’t have to!
- You’ll get more of the features you need, less of what you don’t, and all in the most cost-effective way.
- You’ll spend less time worrying about technology, and more time on the work you love.
I was born in Cambridge, England and moved to California in 2004. When I’m not creating beautifully effective websites, you’ll find me running, reading, or searching for my next venue to enjoy tea and a slice of cake.

10 facts about me
- I lived in Cambridge, Aberdeen, and London, before crossing the Pond to the San Francisco Bay Area.
- The last consonant I learned to pronounce was “W”. These days, you’ll find me indecisive about British versus American spellings.
- I’ve flown in Concorde to New York, a hot-air balloon in Vermont, and a seaplane in the Maldives.
- My favourite colour is dark purple, more specifically eggplant (if you’re American) or aubergine (if not).
- My husband taught me the basics of windsurfing. I got good enough to fall off a windsurfing board in the Pacific, Atlantic, and Indian Oceans, plus the Mediterranean and Caribbean Seas.
- If you made me choose between alcohol and tea, Earl Grey would win. My favourite hideaway to enjoy luxury afternoon tea is Dukes Hotel in London.
- I’m a slow but determined runner. My second marathon in Reykjavik, Iceland, was probably my last!
- My Olympic sport would be afternoon napping. And I’ve never yet met an airplane seat I can’t fall asleep in.
- Leaving my family in England and shipping everything I owned a distance of 5,000 miles was the hardest thing I’ve ever done.
- When I’m sick, my go-to movies are Bridget Jones’s Diary and Pride & Prejudice.
The formal bio
Pauline Wiles is a website designer who builds a crisp and compelling online presence for authors and solo entrepreneurs. As an author herself, she noticed others were often overwhelmed by this task. Now, she aims not only to create pared-back, powerful websites, but also to dispel some of the myths around how difficult a web project should be.
British by birth, Pauline is now a contented resident of California, although she admits to an occasional yearning for afternoon tea and historic homes. Her professional resume includes teaching computing to adults on both sides of the Atlantic, as well as desktop support, entrepreneurship education, and marketing analysis.
When not creating websites, Pauline can be found writing romantic comedy, or calculating how many miles she has to run to justify an extra piece of cake. She loves to travel, but adores coming home, too.
