“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 that the text captured my authentic voice."

“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…"
