The book serves as a guide for WordPress users from avoiding common mistakes when purchasing, selecting and using different WordPress themes. The book is available on Amazon for $24.99 or less. A native of Valencia, Calif., Denyer is now the lead User Experience Designer at DwellAware, a San Francisco-based startup company that researches and produces propiretary information to help potential homebuyers find new homes.
