Creative Writing Services specializes in assisting you to record your personal memoir or family history.
Mature people often allow the heritage of their life-and-times to be lost and forgotten. They fail to realize that “everyone’s life is interesting.” The legacy of personal history is a most important gift to your family and to yourself.
Frankly, it’s tough to write unassisted about your own roots and family values. I have developed a unique service which helps you to preserve your family’s wealth of memories, stories, and factual information. The process is creative and inspiring.
Through sensitive listening, experienced interviewing, and skillful writing, I help to create a narrative that is interesting and easy to read. Thus, oral history is preserved for children and grandchildren.
Your remembered past need not be lost!
