About me


Hello - I'm Katarina, your personal biographer…


With an Anglo-Indian father and a German mother, I was surrounded by fascinating life stories from an early age. That love of family history has never left me, and I have been fortunate to make a career out of listening to people telling me about themselves, as a writer for health organisations and top publishing companies.

Setting up Life Story in a Book was a dream come true, and so far, I have written over forty biographies.

I love what I do and feel immensely privileged to bring together precious family histories, personal stories and cherished memories to create unique and lasting legacies which can be passed down from generation to generation.

I aim to take the hard work out of the book-writing process, ensuring that my clients have an enjoyable and stress-free experience.

I’ve covered many experiences in people’s lives:

  • Family relationships
  • Career achievements
  • Special romances
  • Travels around the world
  • Wartime
  • School days
  • Health challenges
  • Absorbing passions and hobbies

I frequently use video or Zoom which has proven to work very well. So, whether you live close by or on the other side of the globe, we can connect!

Life Story in a Book is owned and run by me, and I work closely with Ros Ingram, one of the best graphic designers in the business, IT expert Martin Carr and a proofreader.

I am proud to be a member ofthe Society of Authors.

I am fully insured, vaccinated and DBS checked.
