‘My work is to help people create their greatest gift – their memoir, where they give of themselves and in doing so, self-discover.’ – Mark Koehler

Coconut FACE Welcome M 800x700Hello and welcome to LifeStory Writing!

It’s not just a story. You are opening up and giving of yourself. So it’s not about ego, but rather, making a valuable contribution to the world, to make it a better place. You are creating a legacy. Through this process you are likely to find out about yourself and self-discover.

We want to inspire you to put words onto the page. Lots of suggestions here for your writing project, be it memoir or biography. Why exit this world without leaving behind something of value – a legacy that will last.
You may want to take advantage of our ghostwriting or professional editing service. We also mentor and provide hints for your manuscript. I trust your writing project will be a high point in your life.

We can help you with publication and printing, or photography and graphic design. If you have any questions or need more information please contact me at LifeStory Writing any time.

Simpl2521b Re stories well told

Writing your life story is a wonderfully rewarding experience. You don’t need to be famous. I think there is magic in simple stories from everyday people, well told. It’s a fascinating quest yet it can be frustrating, and indeed life-changing. When they come from the heart, great stories emerge. And I must say that helping people with their life story as an editor or mentor, is an absolute joy.

I wish you well in your endeavour.

Please make use of any ideas and information here that spark your imagination. I look forward to your contact.
