Is there any particular reason why you don't want to learn how to code your website? Any software which produces the code for you will undoubtedly have a poorer quality end result. Especially if your website has specific or complex needs, if you really don't want to learn to code I would recommend using a CMS product like Wordpress and adapting it using a theme (though you may well be limited again to what you can do without poking around the code).

I'd recommend Wordpress here too, as its not just for blogs anymore and you can easily build a nice website with it using more traditional "static" web pages.
If you already have web hosting with someone chances are good they have an easy way to install wordpress with a few clicks, and a quick google search for "free wordpress theme" will turn up plenty of options. ("mandigo" is one of my favorite free themes that's easy to customize)
As far as paid themes go, you can find some great ones for $20 - $40 at themeforest.com, or spend $20 at elegantthemes.com to get access to a great collection you can use on any of your sites.

thanks Steve for your advice
i have installed word-press now looking for a good theme, I am a freelancer, writer specially my interest area is mystery, thriller, horror. So, I need a theme in black or any dark color positioned toward thrill or mystery. Can't wait for new website to up, I have bundle of notes and short stories to put in.
