Book Cover: "Little Princess & Blond Angel" by Elisa and Gustavo Del Vecchio - Written and published by LifeStory Memoir
Elisa and Gustavo

Following the war, Gustavo, a sergeant in the Italian Air Force, met a kindred spirit in Elisa, a hairdresser in her family salon. Diplomatically navigating the etiquette of the time and place, including Elisa’s idiosyncratic, larger-than-life father, the two married and began their adventure together by emigrating to New Jersey.

Hi, I'm Richard

LifeStory was born when my grandfather, a World War II veteran, asked me to write his memoir. The fulfilling experience inspired me to create LIFESTORY, the perfect union between my passion for writing and storytelling with my love of family and history.

Many people have dreamed of sharing their LIFESTORY, but writing it yourself can be an overwhelming task. I provide a warm, easy, and enriching experience that culminates in a memoir you will be proud to share with your family. The wisdom, experiences, and incredible stories that each of us possesses need to be shared while our memories are fresh.

Seeing the look on my client’s face when I place their completed memoir in their hands is an unforgettable and heartfelt moment.

Telling your unique story is a courageous and life-affirming experience; it benefits us, our family, and the generations to come.
