Alison Vina, founder

 Alison Vina, director of Book of My Life
The past may be a foreign country, but its citizens are really just like us. I love finding out about the lives of people whose hopes and dreams were similar to mine but who faced different challenges because of the time in which they were born.
— Alison Vina

I established Book of My Life in 2007 and have since overseen the production of dozens of biographies for people across the UK. Past clients include the late Frank True, businessman and founder of the Luncheon Vouchers Company; Graham Walker, businessman and yachtsman who led a bid for the America’s Cup in 1986; and singer Elizabeth Osborn. But I am interested in every life story, not just those of the successful or the famous.

I have a degree in English literature and worked as a writer and editor for over a decade for publishers including the BBC and Egmont before launching Book of My Life. During my early career I wrote many short stories for children before changing my focus to the stories of those with rather more life experience. These days, I work with a select group of professional writers, editors and designers to produce books of the highest quality for Book of My Life’s clients.

From start to finish, Alison, at Book of my Life was understanding, knowledgeable, patient and totally honest as she guided me through the process.
