It was a joy working with Raconteur. I always dreamed of writing my story, but I couldn’t sit down and write it myself. Olivia Savoie being there made my dream come true: to put my life story down on paper to give to my children and grandchildren. Without her, I never could have gotten all my memories in order. Olivia asked me about so many things I never would have thought to put in the book. Now, I can look at the book and reminisce. As I get older, my memory isn’t too good, but the book keeps me going. I can check it to remember trips or special times. Raconteur did a great job.

I read about Olivia and her services in a local magazine. I knew then that I had to engage her to work on a memoir of my mom and dad. She did an excellent job of capturing the memories and stories of my family… I would unequivocally recommend her services to anyone. I'm so pleased that my grandchildren [and] mom and dad's great grandkids will have something in writing to know a little bit of their history.

Because we've [my wife and I] had such a varied background and been to so many places, a lot of them before the children were born, I thought it would be nice if it [our life story] was in writing. I had always thought that I would do it. But I could not have imagined anything that I would do would turn out to be something like this [book]. She [Olivia Savoie] has just done a marvelous job... I got the distinct feeling when I was reading it that I was talking. She had a knack to put me right in the middle of this. I think when my kids read this, this is going to be Dad talking.

My thought from the beginning was to produce a written manuscript with which I might surprise my children—that would somewhat describe what life was like in my early years… It is with a great deal of relief and appreciation that I thank Olivia for her focus and leadership in helping bring this task to fruition.

I loved reading about the life of my grandfather! Thank you so much, Olivia, for capturing these stories... If you want your life story put into a book, she is very talented and you won't be disappointed.

You asked me questions, and I answered you from the bottom of my heart. You wrote my story. The beauty was how you captured not only what I said but the emotions and spirit of the most delicate of all things—like faith or inner strength. And you captured those delicate things and put so many memories together to sound just like me. It’s incredible.

This book, Dad’s life story, is perfect. Raconteur Life Story Writing did a wonderful job. Several interviews with dad and mom, going through photos and documents, writing drafts and coming back, reviewing it with dad to make sure it was just right, then publishing this wonderful treasure. Even presenting it to him personally. Thank you.

Olivia was amazing throughout the entire process. The book came out better than anyone thought, and her ability to capture the details and deliver an exceptional product comes naturally to her. I cannot say enough good things about the process and her ability even when dealing with difficult circumstances. I highly recommend her services.
