Have you always wanted to tell the story of your life, to preserve your family's history for future generations, publish a book about your business success story? Evermore Legacies provides personalized services that can help you make that wish come true!


Many people get stuck when they face an empty page or computer screen, and life's other pressing needs get in the way of writing a personal history. I can help you get off the mark, outline your project, and keep you moving forward. Through a series of recorded interviews, I will write your story as you want it to be remembered and recorded. The result will be a book or other document you can be proudly leave as a legacy.


As a journalist trained at the University of Missouri-Columbia, I learned to look for "the story," and my most compelling assignments have always been those that are deeply rooted in shared human experiences. Although a detective aims for "just the facts, ma'am," a good journalist - and a good personal historian - seeks the emotions, the values, the meanings that bind all of us together as human beings. My experience in daily newspapers also taught me a keen respect for accuracy and for the writer's voice. I bring these values to my work as a personal historian and will guard your personal stories with the utmost confidentiality and care. I pledge to tell your story the way you want it told, no more, no less.

Families are steeped in stories. Not until I had two children of my own did I realize quite so well how patterns of relationships, traditions, customs, moral values, and historical time and place can impact our families and our personal development. And all of these factors are passed along from parent to child, generation after generation, in stories. My fascination with families led me to pursue a Master of Science in Family Studies at Wheelock College, Boston, Mass. In my coursework and practicum experiences, I learned that telling family stories can be therapeutic and powerful - a gift for today and the future. Everyone has a compelling story because each of us lives a life that is woven from our shared humanity and yet singularly unique.

Family trees are fascinating to trace, but they come alive only when they are hung with stories. I would consider it a great honor to help you record and preserve your treasured memories for years to come.
