Books and Awards

When I began my business in the late ’90s I never imagined that as-told-to stories would become so popular and available to the public. While many of my clients still choose to write their books to share only with family and friends, many have started telling their stories to share with others. In 2019 I began contacting past clients and asking for their cover images and links to their books, if I didn’t already have them, so I can share with readers. Additionally, I am asking former clients that if they would like to list their book in the awards section below, contact me.
