Your stories are the leaves, buds and blossom on your family tree.
CREATING UNFORGETTABLE MEMORIES
Hi! I am a personal historian with a passion for helping people gather, organise and preserve their life stories. I've been doing this work for over thirty years and I have yet to hear a dull or boring story.
My specialties are interviews and life story books. As a former psychiatric and geriatric nurse I relate easily to older people and over the years I have done countless interviews around Australia and (via FaceTime and Skype) the world.
Writing is my forte. I work to capture the "voice" of the storyteller, so the book reads as if he or she is speaking. Families often say "that sounds just like Dad etc" as they read.
Good outcomes come from close collaboration. I'd love to learn about you and the project you have in mind. Today there are many different ways in which stories can be saved, so why not get in touch and perhaps we can save your stories before time passes and memories fade?
WHAT PEOPLE SAY
I was sceptical at first when my son said that he would like to record my life story but once I met Annie and she explained the whole process to me I was quite enthusiastic.
