Everyone has a book in them - their very own autobiography!
This Is My Life will create the autobiography or memoir you've always wanted to write – and you will be the author. Everything will be documented in your words.
Choosing This Is My Life means you will get me – Sandra Waldron - an experienced journalist, as your ghost writer. I will love listening to your story and with my care, sensitivity, and sense of humour the whole process will be a thoroughly enjoyable one.
People often say their lives have been very ordinary but there is no such thing as an ordinary life.
We’ve all had a childhood, relatives, relationships, jobs, and lots of highs and lows along the way.
If you set this against the decades of social history in which you have lived, you have all the ingredients of a great read.
Having interviewed hundreds of people, I know that everyone has a story to tell and experiences worth sharing with the next generation.
All of us want to be remembered for the sum of our life, rather than just as we are today. Your children and grandchildren will only have known you in later years and would, no doubt, love to know what you were like as a child and what life was like when you were a young adult.
I will listen to your stories, help you organise your memories and photographs, and then weave everything together in a beautifully bound and illustrated book. It will be a perfect reflection of you, cherished by your family and an heirloom in years to come.
If you, your parents, or your grandparents are too modest to think themselves worthy of a book, think again. Memories are best written down before they are lost for good.
“In life, you don’t regret the things you do, you regret the things you don’t do” — Hugh Jackman
Sandra was relaxed, focused, and delightful to spend time with. She was full of smiles and enthusiasm and I thoroughly enjoyed our interviews.
I wasn’t sure about doing an autobiography as I thought my life has been very ordinary compared to others, but that’s where I was wrong.
The book Sandra has produced is a testament to a good writer. I just wish I could go back and live the highlights again!
