Bound Biographies prides itself in providing a 'hand-holding' service at every stage of the process. This has been developed and honed over two decades and we know of no more comprehensive or enjoyable service.

We always relish a challenge, so whatever your requirements, please phone Mike for a chat. He will explain various options and prices, and even if we can't help, we'll be happy to point you in the right direction.

Your Life Story

Most people think that a biography is only for the rich and famous, not for the 'ordinary' person. However, at Bound Biographies, we do not believe that anyone is simply 'ordinary'. Everyone has a story to tell - about their childhood, their family, perhaps their experiences of the war years, their education and employment, travels around the world, and coming to terms with all the changes and challenges that life throws at them.
