What people say

“My Mum was thrilled when we gave A Life Untold to her for Christmas. She had previously talked about writing her life story but I think it may never have actually got off the ground.”

Sarah | AUS

“It’s a great concept. Anyone can write it. Better still, anyone can read the finished product.”

Robert | AUS

“My mother and I had a wonderful time reminiscing and answering the interview questions together. She is not in the best of health and it was of benefit to her to talk about and share the past with me. She was super excited and appreciative knowing that her life story would be written and presented in book form. Great way to connect closer with family.”

Karl | USA
“A Life Untold made being ‘an author’ so easy. The quick response with emails and the quality of the completed book is more than I hoped for. I am so anxious to give this to my mom for Christmas. It is a gift she will treasure always.”
Debbie | USA

“My book arrived this morning and I am absolutely thrilled. It is beautifully presented, I had not expected the pictures to be in colour – you have made my day.”

Helen | AUS

“Thank you so much! I love my book. Keep doing what you’re doing.”

Doug | USA

“I’m ordering one for my mum, dad and grandma so our one year old daughter will be able to read their stories one day.  I’m a total fan.”

Rachel | AUS

FAQ

Autobiographies can be difficult to write and hard to read. Our Q&A interview solves both of these challenges. We make it easy to write because the interview questions naturally prompt you to remember - and write down - interesting events in your life. Not everyone feels like a confident writer but absolutely anyone can answer questions. Best of all, loved ones that read your story will feel like they're sitting down with you and having a wonderful conversation about your life. It's your story, told your way, in your own words.
We know your story is unique so have taken the following steps to ensure our questions capture everything you want to say:
  1. We cover a broad range of "life chapters" including (but not limited to) relationships, childhood, family, work, children and more philosophical questions as well.
  2. We use open-ended questions to encourage meaningful answers that can branch off in any direction depending on your life experience.
  3. We give you the opportunity to add your own questions if you want to add anything specific.
It's your story, told your way, in your own words.

We've had people finish their life story in a single sitting. Others love the process and continually refine and expand their answers over many months. It's totally up to you!
With your permission, we carry out a standard spelling and grammar check for free. However, if you'd like a more thorough edit of your final book before printing, we can organise this too. Our editing service involves checking spelling and grammar, in addition to taking a close look at how your story is presented. It may involve lightly rewriting or reordering parts of your story to make it easier to understand. We charge $150 per 10,000 words for our editing service (this is the average length of an A Life Untold book). The final approval of all words before printing will always be in your control.
Absolutely. No autobiography is complete without photos. You can upload them in your interview and there are no restrictions on how many you can add. You can also upload colour or black-and-white images.

In addition, we'll provide you a digital e-book at no extra charge so you can easily share your book with friends and family via email.

Yes. A Life Untold makes a great gift for birthdays, anniversaries or other special milestones. Our online interview is designed to make it easy for parents, grandparents and loved ones to answer at their own pace. Best of all, they'll get a beautifully designed hardcover book about their life at the end - and can order additional copies at a discounted rate to give to friends and family.
