Our Writers and Editors

We are honored to network with a diverse variety of writers and editors with unparalleled skill sets. You can expect to choose from qualified experts that include film, business, editorial, legal, judicial, therapeutic, and newspaper journalism experience. Aside from educational and experiential training, our writers further specialize in stories around trauma, the military, religious experiences and more. We believe in pairing our clients with a writer who truly gets them.

We don’t want to waste anyone’s time or money—yours or ours. We work only with authors who wish to tell their personal and/or business story. Our process works because we are passionate about ensuring that our authors clearly understand how books are written and published.

​It’s important to know that you will work directly with your writer and not an interviewer. Writers know what to ask because they are invested in writing your story. Relying upon their years of experience crafting books, they are your front line to ensure they learn everything they can from you about your life. Hourly paid interviewers are not writers and do not know to ask the right questions.

What are legacy and heirloom books?

Your story is uniquely yours. We invite you to control your narrative by telling your stories your way so that your family, friends, and heirs “inherit” all of your valuable tales, memories, and lessons in a type of book that’s called a legacy or heirloom piece.
