Thank you for visiting my website.

Psst…Memoirs is all about having the unique story of your life, or a loved one’s life, professionally written and beautifully presented in an attractive pocket sized book to pass on to family and future generations.

Everyone has an interesting story to tell. Ordinary people have extraordinary stories. Older people are great storehouses of history with their personal anecdotes and recollections. Psst…Memoirs puts all this together to create a completely bespoke memoir.

The process is relaxed. I usually visit you, the client, for 3 or 4 loosely structured sessions where you tell me your story – some aspects having more prominence than others. It really is up to you. From this I create your narrative.

You can provide up to 20 images of your own – favourite photos, documents, objects which are all scanned into the final story. I take a current portrait photo of you and together we go through the final draft. After it has been proofed and formatted it goes off to print.

The result is a small – A6 – totally bespoke, attractively presented hardbound book which is ideally sized for a jacket pocket or a handbag!

Clients really enjoy the process, as I do, and fall in love with their little books.
I am often commissioned by families or friends to mark a special event, anniversary or birthday. Sometimes it is given as a gift. The memoir is usually of one person, but it can be done for a couple.
