My Life: Jean Virginia Sontag Carter's Biography

Lark Carter had been keeping his late wife's autobiography in a Word document on his computer.

He was grateful to have her memories written down before she had passed on, but knew he needed a better way to honor and share his wife's life story with the family.

Lark contacted me in early November. I began immediately; copy-editing the text, digitizing photos and slides, and repairing old photos that were cracked and aged. I then transformed her text into chapters and designed the layout.

We used Blurb to print the book on premium lustre paper. A stack of books arrived on Lark's door just before Christmas. He gave each family member a copy of Jean's biography, a unique gift for the family to be treasured for many years.
