Journey of a Lifetime

Last year, someone very close to me turned 80. She'd done so many things in her life - she'd been a farmer's daughter, a dental nurse, a tennis-partner and a writer. She'd married the love of her life young, and had nine children with him. She'd suffered loss, she'd celebrated success, she'd been a mother, a grandmother, a great-grandmother and a friend. She'd travelled the world, but was most at home underneath the pōhutukawas at Mahia Beach. She meant everything to my family, and everything to me. So, we gave her the gift of her story. The gift of her life.

The Journey of a Lifetime is our longest,
most detailed and in-depth book option,
and is recommended for the older loved ones
in your life.

A Journey of a Lifetime book takes the gift-recipient on a magical, whimsical adventure through their life history. Along the way, they meet up with their loved ones - their family and friends - who tell them exactly what they've meant to them over the years. What they've done for them. What they love most about them. What they will never be able to look at again without thinking about them.  

Through a process of questioning and in-depth interviews, I work with you to capture who a person is, what is most important to them, what they have done, where they have been, and how special they are to the people in the world around them. 

I welcome any and all questions, ideas and requests.

The Gift of Words.

A Journey of a Lifetime book can take up to eight weeks to complete. For the full project breakdown and pricing, please follow the link below. Or, if you'd like to discuss your ideas, please get in touch.
