Create your private autobiography

The experience of sharing your stories in an autobiography for your loved ones

We believe everyone has a story to tell; share it with your friends and family

While pictures may be worth a thousand words, our feelings convey much more

Create your
private
autobiography

in three simple steps

1. Personal Interviews

Lifebook Interview

The author will enjoy regular face-to-face interviews, over four to five months. The interviewer records all the sessions and helps select photographs for the book.

2. Professional Ghostwriter

The recordings are developed into a manuscript by a professional ghostwriter, which is regularly edited by our team through consultation with the author.

3. Create your LifeBook™

After a final review and the author’s sign-off, our team then ensures the stories, photographs and memories are brought together to create a beautiful hand-crafted LifeBook™.
