Our Journal contains arguments for telling life stories from an array of perspectives across cultures and generations.
We believe that everyone has a story, but that many are unable to tell it, despite new technologies that theoretically make it easier to narrate our lives than at any point in human history.
We think our whole life story will be at our fingertips whenever we wish to summon it. But, faced with the task of remembering, we quickly realize how elusive the past can be. Why does that happen? And how do good writers work through that problem, finding the language to make their memories palpable and real to the readers?
From retyping the manuscript to designing it, from securing it at the Library of Congress to producing an audiobook and marketing it worldwide, Aaron and AJ worked to create a book worthy of Magda’s story and her spirit.
At each step along the way—from composition to publication—bioGraph’s team is here to help. We take the anxiety and uncertainty out of making a book. We give you the freedom to focus on the parts of writing that are most rewarding and productive for you.
We sit down with you and discuss how you want your book to look, sound, and feel. We don’t insist on a standardized process for gathering the materials for your book, as many other companies do. Instead, we design the process together.
Every bioGraph book begins with a human voice. Whether you’re telling your family’s story or imparting wisdom from your years in business, we make sure that your voice is at the center of the book we write together.
bioGraph’s writers are accomplished professionals—many with advanced degrees from distinguished writing programs like the Iowa Writers’ Workshop. We use our skills to help paint a rich portrait of your life for your readers. Our books are more than resumes—they convey the way your world looks, smells, tastes, and feels.

“People generally think those memoirs only worthy to be read or remembered which abound in great or striking events; those in short, which in a high degree excite either admiration or pity: all others they consign to contempt and oblivion.”
