What people are saying about us

  • Our family had a very positive and enjoyable experience working with Gabriella to capture the life stories of both my parents. Despite their initial reservations, both mum and dad relaxed into the story sharing process and have been very pleased with the manuscript that Gabriella created as a result. I've really appreciated the collaborative nature of the process, and Gabriella's openness to extended family inputs.
    Now to complete the story with design and photos and have our book! Thanks Gabriella - we highly recommend you as a partner for anyone looking to capture random memories into a flowing, personalised narrative!

  • Gabriella and Ian made this such a wonderful experience. The journey, in recalling the past, bought back great memories, some of which hadn't been remembered for years. Gabriella writes in a way that gives colour and life to the story. Ian does an incredible job collating the photos, translating black and white photos to colour, and hunting down extra photos that we had thought were forever lost. The book itself is beautifully presented. The details of Mum's life story would quickly fade once she is gone, despite being much loved by us, and we are overjoyed at the result. Thank you so much Gabriella and Ian.

  • Gabriella ghostwrote and helped complete a project l had been working on for a couple of years - but ran out of creative steam. Her well-structured and disciplined approach to writing was a pleasure to work with and actually assisted us in providing all the necessary information for Gabriella to weave her lyrical magic. Thanks for helping us put the finishing touches on our book about our little soldier.

  • Gabriella produced something we'd been dreaming of for decades, but felt totally overwhelmed by doing on our own. Capturing 100+ years of our family history brilliantly, recording our voices and researching the broader context incredibly well. I can't wait to see it in print. Thanks Gabriella!

  • I think that lots of people doing interesting and important, and maybe even inspiring things, can be too busy most of the time actually doing those things to describe them - for ourselves, and to pass on to other people. If you are still too busy living your life to spend four years of it writing it up as a / another thesis or similar, consider something more human but no less intelligent. A few hours telling your story through Gabriella's perceptive interviewing and deft writing are definitely (a surprisingly few) hours well spent. And the finished result just looks and reads so well.

  • You will reach a chapter in life and ask, ‘What was this journey all about?’ Often, we pass on with little left to be shared with family, friends and the world. The Memoir solves this.

    Sit quietly and reflect on your life. List a chronology, and you will be surprised at what is revealed.  Then to Gabriella for guidance in structure and editing, as I have done. Start your Memoir, and you will not stop.  A wonderful chapter in life.’

  • Gabriella recorded my story in the most magnificent way. She shared pivotal moments in my life and importantly captured the less tangible elements such as my values, feelings and sense of self.
    I'm grateful Gabriella crafted my story so sensitively and intuitively.

Hi. I’m Gabriella Kelly-Davies.

Hi, I’m Gabriella Kelly-Davies 

I’m passionate about storytelling and helping people share their story with loved ones and future generations.

I’ve studied biography writing at Oxford University, Australian National University and Sydney University and have won several prestigious writing awards.

I’d love to write your story so your memories and life experiences live on forever.

I’ve lived and breathed storytelling all my life, both as a career and a hobby.

Storytelling is a powerful way of communicating what you stand for, the lessons you’ve learned in life, the exciting journeys you’ve embarked upon, the knowledge you’ve gained and the love you feel for your family and friends.

I believe a life story or memoir is a tremendous legacy you can leave your loved ones and generations to come.

Your memories are precious.

Writing a memoir or life story is about remembering. It’s about preserving and sharing your life journey—your story.

It’s about holding onto the ordinary moments, and occasionally the extraordinary ones. Everyone has a story to tell, and your family wants to remember the precious moments in your life.

The special memories, anecdotes and quirky things that make you who you are, the person they love so much.

If you capture your stories now, you’ll create a treasure for you and your kids, your friends … and generations to come. Everyone can share their life story.

You don’t have to squirrel yourself away for months on end and find the time to write. You don’t even need to keep a diary.

We can get started with a free no-obligation consultation about your wishes for a life story or memoir.

If you decide to proceed, we’ll give you a questionnaire to fill out to jog your memory. Then we’ll do one or more interviews, depending on the package you choose, until we’ve captured your story.

We’ll do the writing and all you have to do is proofread it.

I’ve made it my life’s purpose to make a difference in the lives of the people around me.

I’m ready to make a difference in your life and the lives of your loved ones by writing your precious life story.

We all want to be remembered, to feel we’ve contributed something to the world.

Your story is your legacy and by sharing it, you’ll be remembered by your loved ones and generations to come.

I’m ready to help you share your greatest legacy; are you ready to get started?
