Life Story Books

Books are our most popular service. We pay attention to quality in all aspects of the work we produce and the way it is presented. We provide a personalised, confidential service that is tailored to the needs of the individual, company or organisation.

We often begin work with a client by visiting them in their own home or work place. Our interviews are friendly and informal as we get to know one another. We work with a client collaboratively so that they are fully involved and consulted at all stages of the creative process. 

You may have started writing your memoirs and just need some help to finish them off. We offer one-on-one mentoring, editing and ghost writing services, as well as expertise in publishing books.

A good story deserves to be illustrated and we are experts at photo restoration and scanning, and designing family trees. Be assured that we will look after and treasure your precious photos and historical documents as if they are our own.

Our services include:

  •  Advice and consultation
  •  Interviews and Research
  •  Writing / Ghostwriting
  •  Editing
  •  Mentoring writers
  •  Book design
  •  Publishing full Life Story or Pocket Memoir
  •  Producing a Video Life Story or an Audio Life Story
