Lianne - Editor
Hi, I’m Lianne, Bespoke Editor.
My background is largely in academic publishing, with a focus on managing social sciences publications. My education centered on creative writing, and I have worked extensively as a copy-editor and proofreader across a variety of disciplines, including fiction, post-graduate theses, instruction manuals and B2C marketing.
In May 2017, LifeBook Bespoke director, Yvette Conn, along with a specialist corporate interviewer-ghostwriter, spent a week at the SteelFab, Inc. head office in Charlotte, NC, conducting face-to-face interviews with SteelFab, Inc.’s management team. Through these interviews, our own extensive research and working closely with SteelFab, Inc.’s chairman and CEO, Glenn Sherrill, our team was able to build a full historical picture of the company, their journey and the philosophies that have given them the outstanding reputation they have today.
After 62 years, we believe the timing is appropriate for the story of our family business, SteelFab, Inc., to be put into writing for future colleagues and family members to read.
This book is intended to preserve the early history of SteelFab, Inc. so that the company’s future employees and leaders may remain mindful of the company’s beginnings, the values, and the culture originally instilled in SteelFab, Inc.’s philosophy by J. Glenn Sherrill.
Sadly for many friends and relatives, it is too late for them to take part in the writing of their own story. However, if you wish to write something as a memorial to them, we can help. Whether a full-scale biography or a selected memoir relating to a certain part of their life, our team of experts can piece together the material to make a lasting memoir. Using interviews and research, our writers then compile and design a book that is a fitting tribute to their memory and the lives they have touched. Clients have included individuals, families and corporations remembering employees.
Nigel Smales wanted to complete the research and book he had written about his father, a founding member of the Army Film and Photographic Unit. The AFPU had a crucial role during WWII, reporting on all the major battles. We helped Nigel complete his account, When You’re Smiler, producing specially designed and fully illustrated hardback books.
With the increasing popularity of genealogy, more and more people are looking to write their family history. Tracing back the generations can be a fun and fascinating hobby, but what do you do with all that research? Unless you actually write it down and get all the information into a book, you run the risk that all your hard work will never see the light of day. At LifeBook, we can help turn your years of research into books to treasure for generations.
Tony Abrahams spent years completing the research on his ancestors, Tracing them across Europe and back to the earliest American settlers, he has produced a rich mine of facts, figures, illustrations, reminiscences and information. A loving and personal tale of just one family, Tony was delighted that we could help transform all of this information into a printed book, Dear Relative…
