What’s Your Story?

Treasured tales, family lore, cherished holiday memories, grandparents’ wisdom, travel adventures, school days, career tracks, entrepreneurial endeavors, old friends, favorite neighbor-hoods, community history, dream states, great decisions, foolish mistakes, outdated secrets and other loose legends.

Spend a little time now to have these priceless stories written up for you. The future will thank you forever!

Getting Started

One interview. One hour. Once a week. That’s how it works. In between meetings, you will receive an email with a draft manuscript for your review.

Where to meet? If you happen to live in the San Francisco Bay Area, then we can get together at a local cafe. If not,  we can go virtual and meet via Skype!

A life well-lived.

A story well-written.

A legacy preserved.

What better gift could you offer?


$25 per hour. Expect to pay for two hours of writing time each week along with the one hour weekly interview. We’ll work piece-by-piece on your story until you say it’s time to stop.
