Your life as a book

Your own biography - the best gift for yourself and your descendants

Life is what happens to us while we are busy doing something else,” writes Henry Miller. "Memories is the only paradise from which we cannot be expelled," says the German narrator Jean Paul. The intersection, the story of one's own life, is a valuable gift.


Everyone has their own story and it is so individual, so multifaceted that it is worth capturing. Tell your story. I have made it my task to provide you with tailor-made support in creating your biography. I have thought of various ways to solve both smaller and more extensive tasks for you. 


My motivation for supporting you in your personal search for clues is not to see dealing with your own past as an unloved pastime, but as a future-oriented sighting of what you have experienced.

Support for your biography project

In order to support you with your book project, I have put together various offers from my biography workshop - from editing to manuscript creation to complete book production.

Editing: Your text under scrutiny
Have you already written down your memoirs, but would you like the content and form to be checked? I would be happy to review your manuscript for gaps in understanding of the content, carry out comprehensive proofreading and help you to turn your biography into entertaining reading.

manuscript creation
Are you struggling with writing and need professional help? The most beautiful way of reviewing one's own life is that of reminiscence through narrative. In several conversations you tell - stimulated by careful questions - about your life. On the basis of these conversations, the manuscript of your life story is created in my biography workshop.


layout service
Your manuscript has been written and corrected, the final version of the text is complete and you would like to combine it with your photos into a beautiful work of art? If you need assistance in designing your book, please contact me. I stage your story in a visually profitable way.

video consultation

You would like to work with me for an hour (or longer...) and talk about your biography project. Then book a time slot in my video consultation hour:
