Everyone has a story to tell – and for that reason, Pat has created the Lifelong Stories memoir writing service to capture the valuable memories our elders hold dear that we don’t want to lose.
Over the years, Writer For Hire Pat Kramer has collaborated with authors as their ghostwriter to complete books they want written such as Bob Rhody’s book “Designing the American Home for Market Value,” published by Redwood Publishing in 2020. Another example would be the memoirs of author Izzy Eichenstein for his book “The Rebel and the Rabbi’s Son.” This book recounts the experiences he has undergone in choosing to leave his family’s dynasty and centuries-old heritage to become his own person. Pat is presently ghostwriting three other books for first-time authors, two of which are motivational stories and another which documents a probate estate lawyer’s journey to improve the system for her clients and their families.
Over the past ten years, Pat has written a number of family memoirs for individuals to document their personal histories. This includes the grand-daughter of Julia Vera Keys, the first white woman born on the island of Catalina at the turn of the 20th century; Dorothy W. and the life of her family who lived in a Japanese internment for four years; Shirley F., a former runway model in the 1930’s and daughter of a bootlegger; Virginia W., the wife of an oil industry executive whose early life began on a 40-acre farm in Indiana in the 1920’s; Kim N., the survivor of the Cambodian genocide; and Pedro I., born in the Basque Country of Spain whose early life included working as a sheepherder in the mountains of Arizona. Everyone has a story to tell and all are worth writing down for future generations to read.
Having one’s memoir written is a valuable process that helps seniors connect with their past and the people they have loved. It also provides a written legacy of their lives and experiences that can be passed down through the generations that follow.
Pat has also written books for business professionals, including a book on Tax Saving Tips by a Chicago CPA (soon to be published), a teaching manual by a Burbank psychotherapist and a Pet Grooming Manual written for a grooming school. Pat also was the ghostwriter for “Restaurant Proprietors Beware,” a restaurant consultant’s guide highlighting mistakes in the restaurant industry and a series of management consulting guides by Management Consultant Dick Dadamo to help mid-size companies capitalize on their strengths and assets for successful business endeavors.
Pat also has authored training guides (management and employee manuals) for the Asian retail chain FAMIMA, and she also wrote their press releases for the launch of their American stores.
Over the years, Pat has worked with a diverse group of authors, some whom you would recognize and others who were aspiring writers, helping them write their books and also promote them.
