If you are unsure about committing to an Heirloom Biography or a My Story Memoir, we strongly encourage choosing to have Professional Interviews conducted. This way, you essentially buy an insurance policy against anything that might arise that later would prevent your loved one from telling his or her story.
Sheridan Hill brings more than 25 years’ experience to the process of collecting your loved one’s stories. Her warm, professional style has never failed to bring forth abundant memories from those she interviews (barring conditions such as dementia and Alzheimer’s).
Benefit 1: We have found that, sitting quietly with a professional biographer, many people will tell stories that they may not tell a close family member.
Benefit 2: The interview process also has an inevitable healing effect in that the biographer is an impartial, completely-attentive witness to the events of the past.
Benefit 3: These interviews can later be used by Real Life Stories or anyone else to write a memoir or a full biography of the person interviewed.
The process is: Hill conducts 10-12 hours of interviews, usually accomplished over 3-4 days onsite. (Skype interviews can also be conducted)
We deliver to you: Audio mpg files of the interviews, on gold 300-year archival disks, and a Word document of extensive notes taken during the interviews. Please call Sheridan today to schedule professional interviews: 828 785 2828.
