How does it work and what does it cost?


With Story of My Life, all the work is done for you. All you need to do is tell your story.

The interview process is relaxed and many people have said how much they enjoy it and how telling their life story allows them to feel acknowledged.

Why should you tell your story? It’s so important that our stories are told and recorded, written and kept alive. Without them, we lose a vital part of our family history as well as our social history.

Telling your life story and having it printed is a great experience. All you have to do is tell your story. It can be your whole life story, a certain period of time or a series of events.

Please ring me on 0419 553305 or send an email to [email protected] for details about available packages.

Having your life story written allows you to share your special memories, what you have learned about life, your wisdom, your regrets and your insights.

STEP 1: Over a number of sessions, I will record you telling your story with a digital recorder. The sessions can take place in your home, your office, your favourite place, even by phone or Skype. The sessions are informal, relaxed and enjoyable.

STEP 2: Each recording session lasts for approximately one hour.  After each session, the material is transcribed and edited into your story, retaining your distinctive voice on the page. Your chosen photos and memorabilia are added.

STEP 3: When it is completed, you will receive a USB/CD-ROM with your life story ready for printing or viewing electronically.

I acknowledge and pay my respects to the Dharawal people, the traditional owners and custodians of the land where I work and live.
