“From the very first contact, I knew I had made the right choice! Emily from Story Terrace was so helpful and the communication was perfect. I knew where I was every step of the way. The book (which was a surprise for my husband’s 40th) was a real success and Judy (the writer) captured the story perfectly. I really enjoyed the process.”
"Story Terrace’s flexible and informal, but professional approach and the reasonable price suited me well — so I could relax, trust and open my heart, ensuring that my intention was understood correctly and the text captured my authentic voice."

I would recommend that people did it because it's a great thing to pass on to your children and grandchildren."
"Making this book has given me the time to reflect on what I chose to do with my life and the people who have helped me along the way.”
"I loved Amy (my writer). She was a delightful person. We had 3 sessions which she recorded. She then made a great 1st draft. I would give the overall experience a 5 of 5. I will certainly recommend this to other families and friends…"
