You are visiting this site because you have a dream: you feel compelled to tell your life story. As a full-time ghostwriter of memoirs, I am here to help you realize your dream. When individuals work with me, together we discover and express his or her unique voice in order to share their experience and wisdom with the world.

There are no new stories, only new ways to tell them. It is said that everyone’s life story corresponds to a myth. What is yours? Let’s excavate your life story and write your memoir.

The process of writing a memoir always begins with excitement and gusto. However, daily life is demanding, and without the support, guidance, and organizing principle of a professional writer, your project will likely end up stashed in your bottom desk drawer. I would love to serve as your support, guide, organizing principle, and professional writer.
