Do you have a story
that is waiting to be told?

If so, we at can help. We're a full service company that specialises in helping individuals, families, communities, and organizations tell the stories and preserve them in print.

Whatever help you need, we can probably provide it.

People often tell us that they dream of telling their life stories, but find themselves overwhelmed by the challenges. They don’t have time, they’re not organized, they don’t know where to start, or they’re intimidated by the many unknowns.

We specialise in helping individuals overcome these obstacles and realise their dreams.

Some clients just want to talk. We tell them, "You talk, and we'll take care of the rest." We manage the project from beginning to end. This includes organizing, interviewing, gathering memorabilia, researching, writing, editing, encouraging, book and cover design, and coordinating with printers.

Other clients only want assistance with a particular aspect of the project -- reviewing a manuscript, organizing, coaching, ghostwriting, editing, copy typing, or book design. We offer all these services.

Whatever help you need, we can probably provide it in a way that reflects your needs and budget. And we will do so in a sensitive, patient, and professional manner that helps make the project easy and even fun.

Do you dream of telling your story? Browse our website, look at some samples, and then call me toll free at 800.864.9152 or email me for a free, no-obligation consultation. Together we can explore how to make your dream a reality.

Philip Sherwood


"Without Philip's help, I could never have written and published my memoirs. Not only is the finished product much better than I ever could have imagined, but the whole process was very rewarding. Philip and his team are professional in every sense of the word, and I benefited first hand from his intuitive editing skills - his ability to rearrange a passage with skill and subtlety without sacrificing anything of the narrative. And all done with a lightness and humour that makes working together pure fun.

"He also taught me the satisfaction of discipline and deadlines! Now that the book is completed, there will be a sad silence at 10.00 p.m., when we had most of our working conversations - I'm a night owl and that's my prime time! Thank you, dear Philip!"

- Joyce Bryant, CM, BEM, author of Slender Threads.
