Books can be any length and will take anywhere from 6 months to several years.  You are in complete control of the project from start to finish.  We will assist you with any choices you have along the way. And, everything is confidential.

  • We meet in your home for the interviews.  These are recorded and are usually scheduled in two-hour sessions.
