Write Your Family Story is an online course which is based on Michael Oke's 25+ years experience of helping people to write their family and life stories into a succinct and enjoyable experience that will take you from the first page to writing a whole book complete with photos.
Michael Oke is the founder of Bound Biographies. The story started in 1991 when he saw an article about a young man helping his grandfather to write his life story. Mike loved the idea and placed an advertisement in a local newspaper. Roy Barton, a retired headmaster from Burghfield Common, near Reading, got in touch and the two met up. Encouraged by his son, Roy had written dozens of pages about his early life and wanted help in turning it into a book.
Having now personally assisted with over 300 books, Mike is recognised as a leading authority on the writing of private life stories.
Mike lectures in the UK and US and has appeared widely in the media.
