PRESERVE YOUR STORIES

I decided to make it my mission to help individuals and families preserve their life stories in heirloom books to be cherished by future generations.

After my mum’s sudden death in 2017, I realised there was very little I know about the woman who gave me life. I do know of events that happened during my lifetime as her son. But how did these events affect her? What were her thoughts and emotions that knowingly or unknowingly I overlooked?

It became very apparent to me I knew little of the woman who was my mum. A lot has been lost to the passage of time and memory. My kids will not have any of it.

When an old man dies, a library burns to the ground. Time steals memories and stories are lost to future generations.

Your life stories are your family's inheritance. Save them for posterity before they slip from living memory

TELL YOUR STORY

Narrative Legacy will make the process pleasurable, taking most of the “work” out of it, leaving an experience that will be a joyful walk down memory lane.

the stories We Help tell

Love story books

Just setting out in marriage or celebrating 50 golden years of togetherness, create a written legacy of the love you share, from how your paths crossed to the many moments - big and small you shared.

Life story books

Memoirs and biographies are not only for kings and rulers. Everyone has a story to share, lessons learnt, and these accounts can inform future generations.

Family Histories

The past shapes our present and informs our future. The story of how we came to be where we find ourselves is a rich treasure trove that becomes a legacy. A Family History puts the heart into a dead family tree, giving a sense of who those people are/were and what we can learn from it.

Business Histories

Recording the business history of a company is not just for Apple, Pepsi or McDonalds. The story of the foundations of any business, large or small, mom-and-pop or publicly listed, forms the ethos of a company. It shapes the values and ideals of a business in an ever-changing environment.

THE PROCESS

we conduct in-home interviews, write, design, and produce beautiful books that your family will treasure for generations

INTERVIEWS

We use a friendly conversational approach to help you record your story. Using our experience gained from years in journalism and documentary, you will feel joy as you navigate the facts, events, memories, and meaning drawn from your life.

WRITING

We craft your stories using your voice and build a narrative arc that will engage and inform readers. This phase may also include additional research and interviews to ensure accuracy. Drafts of the story will be shared and revisions made.

DESIGN

We will guide you with collecting photographs and documents from your archives. We will then scan these with care. Then begins the design process where each book is crafted based on the story and the personality of the subject.

PRINTING

Once we receive the final sign-off, your book goes into printing. We have options for the book covers - from luxury leather to fabric. The inside pages are printed on premium paper that will last for decades, making the book a family heirloom.

MY STORY

I  began my career as a storyteller in print media as a feature writer. I worked in digital media and created features for international television.

After my mum’s death, I realised the number of family histories that are lost with each generation. This is a loss not just for each family, but a collective loss as a society.

Stories make our collective history as a human race. Stories of love and loss, great valor and defeat, perseverance and hope. Lessons learnt over a lifetime. Everyone has a story to tell. Life narratives tell us who we are, where we came from and where we are going. Our past shapes our present and informs our future.

But narrating your life story can feel like a daunting task. “My life is not important and I don’t have interesting stories to tell,” “How do I recall all of the memories from a lifetime?” “What tools do I need to get this done?”

That’s why I started “Narrative Legacies”.
