I'll write your life story for you.
"After nourishment, shelter and companionship, stories are the thing we need most in the world.”
― Philip Pullman, English novelist.
PRESERVE YOUR LIFE STORY
We indulge our love of story all the time, devouring novels and TV shows and movies. Even the shortest social media updates—“I was here”; “This is what we ate”—presuppose a larger, fuller life narrative. But most of the time, that larger narrative—the story of your life—exists only in your head. It never gets written down.
Our stories make us who we are. We seldom tell our own story in full, except perhaps to a close friend or when we have just fallen in love. But telling your story, looking back and looking inward, has a value apart from new-found love or lifelong friendship. Telling your story helps you understand who you are.
When you tell your story to me, your personal historian, you don’t just get a listener. You get a writer who preserves your life story in a book.
In 2020, at age fifty-seven, I was approaching the cusp of old age with the literary promise of my youth still not quite fulfilled. I was so in the habit of living for the future that I didn’t notice I was growing old.
Then the pandemic happened. I started phone my mother more frequently, and I wrote down her stories about her grandfather, not just transcribing them, but transforming them. I realized I had found my calling: writing life stories. Contact me to talk about how I can help you write yours.
My fiction has been recognized with an award from the National Endowment for the Arts. I also have an MFA in creative writing and a PhD in English. Professionally, I’ve proven myself a workhorse of a writer, putting out upwards of 15,000 words a month in high-quality prose on the regular. You can read my CV here.
