Welcome to Life Is a Book. My mission and passion is to help women and men of all ages and backgrounds to write their life story. I believe that creating a memoir, autobiography, or personal history should be fun, enriching, and accessible to all. I welcome the opportunity to assist you.
We all have a story to tell. It doesn’t matter how old, or how young you are. It doesn’t matter where you live, or where your life has taken you. It doesn’t matter how dramatic or how “ordinary” your life has been.
Someone is waiting to hear you tell your life story: who you are, how you’ve lived, what you’ve learned, who you’ve loved and who has loved you. They want to hear about your achievements, the challenges you have met, your hopes and dreams and where they took you.
Writing about our lives is a universal urge, and in today’s cell phone/laptop lifestyle, the need to tell our stories is stronger than ever. And with 21st century technology, making our life story into a book of any length or form has never been easier.
So why do you want to write your memoir or autobiography? Do you want to capture your memories as a gift for your children, grandchildren, or others? Do you want to pay tribute to the people who have meant the most to you? Do you seek to explore your past for personal discovery or healing? Are you finally listening to those who have urged you to do this for years?
Maybe your goal is not to chronicle your entire life but to focus on one major life experience. Perhaps you overcame a disease, a serious accident, a major loss, or a traumatic childhood. Or you built a successful business or organization, served in a war, or had a great adventure.
No matter why you want to write a book about your life, or the life of someone you love, I am here to help you find your way. I’ve devoted more than 15 years to ghostwriting memoirs, autobiographies and inspirational books. The services that I offer, and the information on this website, will steer you toward creating a treasured keepsake. I present more tools, tips, and strategies in my guidebook YOUR LIFE IS A BOOK – AND IT’S TIME TO WRITE IT!
You may choose to call upon me as a personal historian or ghostwriter. I will interview you to bring out your story, then write your memoir or autobiography in your voice.
If you are writing your life story yourself, I offer book coaching and editing to escort you from the starting gate to the finish line. I also teach Writing Your Life Story classes and workshops.
I love my work as a personal historian or ghostwriter of autobiographies because telling our life stories is one of the greatest gifts that we can offer to others, and to the world. It’s always gratifying to see women and men from all over the country, and beyond, experience the satisfaction of bringing their cherished memories to life in their own memoir or autobiography. I want to help YOU gain that same satisfaction and joy.
So again, welcome to Life Is a Book.
