I'm just putting the finishing touches to an incredible book created from letters - painstakingly translated into English - written from one Ukrainian brother to another detailing his life during the Moscow Bolshevik occupation. Not an easy book to write - or to read - but it makes up a unique and important part of world history.
A few years ago I produced a hardback book plus an e-book detailing part of my life as a special gift for my daughter. It led to my business, Your Life Story Written, producing people's Life Story Books. Little did I know it would lead to even more amazing discoveries. So many people from my past who I'd lost touch with for more than 50 years contacted me, having discovered the e-book on the internet. And now, for one, I am creating a book from a story her father wrote before his death. And when I go back to England soon I am going to meet up with her - and her mother again. It just goes to show the incredible power of life stories - and of course - the internet!
