I am now writing personal biographies, and never have I found the writing process to be more rewarding. I am helping people to say: "I Was Here." Personal biographies are not only for famous people. We all have stories of life experiences worth sharing with family and friends. It would be my honor to write your life story. My books have sold more than one million copies. My latest biography is now available on Amazon. You will receive personal, high-quality service throughout the entire project, resulting in a book about your life that you’ll be proud to share with family and friends.
Leave a written legacy about your "dash."

I read of a man who stood to speak
at the funeral of a friend.
He referred to the dates on the tombstone
from the beginning...to the end.
He noted that first came the date of birth
and spoke the following date with tears,
but he said what mattered most of all
was the dash between those years.
For that dash represents all the time
that they spent alive on earth.
And now only those who loved them
know what that little line is worth.
For it matters not, how much we own --
the cars...the house...the cash.
What matters is how we live and love
and how we spend our dash.
So, think about this long and hard.
Are there things you'd like to change?
For you never know how much time is left
that can still be rearranged.
If we could just slow down enough
to consider what's true and real,
and always try to understand
the way other people feel.
And be less quick to anger
and show appreciation more,
and love the people in our lives
like we've never loved before.
If we treat each other with respect
and more often wear a smile,
remembering that this special dash
might only last a little while.
So, when your eulogy is being read
with your life's actions to rehash,
would you be proud of the things they say
about how you spent your dash?
