Stories for Families
Whether you’d like to create a book about your own experiences, save the stories of a parent or grandparent, or document your family history, we can help.
A treasure to last forever
Stories connect multiple generations. They create belonging. They strengthen identity. They inspire, teach, entertain and bring history to life. What greater gift can one give to family members and friends, especially our children and grandchildren?
We turn the stories of individuals and families into beautifully written and illustrated narrative books, as well as other historical items like timelines and videos. We can create books about anything, from a single chapter in your life or profile (Short Stories to Last) to a full-length personal biography.
We do everything—from the first conversation to the delivery of the printed book—guiding you through the process personally and managing the production ourselves. The result is a professional quality book that you and your family and friends will treasure for generations to come.
We work with you to understand your goals, timeline and budget. Then we take your raw material and recorded interviews and craft them into page-turning stories in logical sequence that capture the authentic voice and tone of the subject forever.
