Memoirs Plus is created to engage independent seniors with sophisticated intellectual and creative activities which will enable them to tell their life stories through writing a memoir.


If  it's time to tell your story, then we’re here to listen to you and put it in book form. We write and illustrate your memoir for you to share with your families and friends.




We take memories and make them into memorable books for you and your family.


We Listen

If it's time for you to tell your story, then we're here to listen to you. We usually spend twenty hours or more interviewing you. There are no set questions, but rather we have conversations.


We Learn

It’s never too early to start your memoir. We take your favorite stories, recipes, photos and other memorabilia and organize them with you and your family. We also help you digitize your family photographs.

We Find Your Voice

We help you tell your own story, in your own voice. Without the worries of organizing and editing yourself, we create a beautiful book to share with family, friends and future generations.
