Why I Created the Biography Timeliner?
Adrift at Sea
My family moved house every four months on average. I have no idea why. Mom was terrified of the sea. I have no idea why. And I have no idea why she ended her life by calmly walking into the sea one morning at sunrise. That day, my family’s legacy was washed away forever.
I never had the chance to learn about my family’s lives – their history, adventures, triumphs, talents, loves and losses. And so I began writing; to discover my roots, to recover from pain, and to connect to the love of my lineage. And mostly, to leave a priceless legacy for my children. After ghostwriting life stories, one client at a time, for many years, I created the Biography Timeliner to help everyone, everywhere to write theirs too.
Life stories are the invisible strands that hold our DNA together. Without our stories, we drift. With them, we anchor; connected forever to ourselves and to each other.
