Interviews were both professional and comfortable—Nora's patience was outstanding. Her writing style was informal, clever and filled with stories expressing the genuine sentiments of our family. The end result was a beautiful family history written through a humorous prism. We will treasure this book and hope our grandchildren, great-grandchildren & more get to read it to get a glimpse of where they came from.

We received my parents' memoir book and everyone loved it! It's beautiful - the leather cover looks and feels wonderful. I truly believe this will be a gift that will be appreciated by them, but also by many other people in my family for years to come. Thank you so much for crafting such a unique and meaningful gift and guiding us through the entire process with patience and care.
I purchased this or my Dad for Christmas and it's the most meaningful gift I could've ever gotten him! It was a fun process to see my dad's interview and then see it translated into words and a book. This is something that my entire family will treasure. A truly amazing idea and company!

Memoir for Me created the perfect tribute to my father. Now his stories will live on forever in this book!
The book you created for our father is a treasure that will be passed down through the generations. Pete's stories will come to life for our children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren because of your gift for telling them. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
The business interview was very motivating actually because talking through my business story helped me to realize that I have achieved a lot and that there is this recurring theme in my career path. I always wondered myself what makes me different? What’s my unique selling point? This experience helped me to answer that.
Memoir for Me books are simply incredible!!! I’m a huge fan of what Nora does, and how she does it.
I received my book before Christmas as a birthday gift. It is wonderful. I read it by the fireplace that night, sipping a good scotch. It was slow going as each page and picture took me back! Thank you so much for your fine work, which becomes more apparent each time I pick it up. The dedications were indeed a surprise and brought tears to my eyes. Finally, the cover was so nicely done. Guess I can’t say enough about the results.
Mom just passed away on Wednesday night and I’m so happy I have a book of her stories. I’m now thinking of all my friends and relatives that have parents still living and sharing your information with them. I wish I would have had a book done about my Dad! Thank you Nora for the beautiful keepsake.
You know what my mama's so happy about in this picture? Opening up the book she collaborated on with Memoir for Me. We may remember the stories or the milestones, but now we have documentation of the details. How many times my dad asked her to marry him before she said yes. What she did to overcome her feeling of isolation as a SAHM of three in the 70s. What a badass she was going back to law school at night when we were so small. And where she's traveled all over the world—with my dad, with friends, with us. Highly recommend!

My parents were initially intrigued and apprehensive about having this done for them. They didn’t think they had much of a story to tell. Turns out, they had quite a bit to share! Thank you, Nora, for such an inspiring and lovely way to capture their stories. The process couldn’t have been easier.
Nora's writing style and interviewing skills truly captured the essence of who John was and the impacts he made over a career. The editing and organization were masterful. The entire experience was seamless, and your collaboration to create the best possible outcome was truly appreciated.
