A Note from the Author

After ghostwriting for over 10 years, it still feels unreal that I have a published book with my own name on it, as the author. I get a little misty eyed every time I see it or someone asks me about my book.

Often I have to stop myself before asking which one because they are all “my” books even if I can’t claim them in the real world. I pour my heart into each one, all the while, channeling the author’s voice and soul.

That’s what we do as writers. We give a piece of ourselves to each article, book, and tweet in the hopes of making a lasting impression on the reader.

My hope is that this particular book helps you find a piece of yourself to share with your loved ones that will last a lifetime and beyond.

About the Author

Gael Gilliland is the founder of The Legacy Recorder which helps every person tell their life story in a simple, intentional way for future generations to cherish. She is actively working with corporations, non-profits, and senior care facilities to help as many people as she can in recording their legacy. She also published The Legacy Recorder Community Guide so that individuals and families can get started on their legacy today.

In addition to The Legacy Recorder, Gael has been a freelance writer for over ten years. She’s worked with businesses and individuals to help them create clear and effective writing. Her projects include several full length books, articles, and social media content for full calendar years.

Gael is fortunate to work with her lifelong passion. From a young age, Gael had the desire to master the written word and help people tell their stories. Her own life experiences in college, motherhood, marriage, and loss have fueled her own story and given it a colorful arc of ups and downs, of losing and finding herself, and of discovering the beauty in every person’s story.  This is why she has made it her mission to get those stories down on paper, before those stories fade.
