In 2008, Jean Marx embarked on a unique endeavor to create a company that would produce truly one-of-a-kind keepsakes.  The idea sparked when she began interviewing a family member for a memoir book she planned to give to him for his birthday.  She felt transported on his life's journey alongside him -- an experience she quickly realized she wanted to share with others. 

Since this first experience, Jean has completed over 70 assorted book projects of types ranging from children’s books, short stories, fiction, non-fiction and memoir. She has come to realize that everyone has a fascinating story to tell.  Whether it's a memoir, a tribute book, or a book you've written that you'd like to publish, these are timeless keepsakes that are gifts to pass down your family generations.  She will guide you through the process and she knows the right questions to ask to make your project come to life.  

Jean lives in Berlin, Maryland with Kurt, her husband of over 25 years.  They have two children, Kelly and Peter.  

When it was suggested that I write a memoir I said, ‘I’m not old enough. I’m not distinguished enough.’
But I went home and sat down to write, and the material for the book just came flooding into my hands.
