HOW I CAN HELP
I am an author, biographer, researcher, designer and personal historian.
I work with people who want more than a family tree. I help them gather organise and preserve their life stories and I do this through individually designed projects tailored to an affordable budget.
In my earlier professional life, I worked with older people and helped them tell their life stories.
My skills lie in taking the basic stories and turning them into a book that will be cherished for decades to come.
PACKAGES AND INDICATIVE PRICING
Interviews are the heart of a life story.
They are essential when time is short and, properly edited, they can form a life story.
Over the years I have developed my own technique of "person specific" interviews to uncover long forgotten stories.
Usually 7-10 x hour long interviews.

Lest We Forget
A long time ago I was listening to Dad telling one of his many stories to my boys and, as I saw the rapt attention on their faces, I thought to myself “Somebody ought to write this stuff down”.
