When StoryTerrace CEO Rutger Bruining lost his grandparents, he realized to his dismay that he had not preserved their stories. StoryTerrace was born in Amsterdam in 2014, with the vision of creating a world in which every life story is captured in a meaningful way. Our 600+ professional writers allow us to create beautiful ghostwritten biographies for our customers, their families, and future generations.

We offer standard packages as well as options to upgrade or create a custom package. Writers conduct and record interviews with our customers, write manuscripts of their books, and provide revisions based on feedback from one of our project editors and the storyteller. StoryTerrace handles the photo collection, design, printing, finances, and more.

  • Write a short introduction about yourself
  • Include a paragraph highlighting your writing experience, relevant credentials and publication credits
  • Attach links to your strongest work or portfolio, and online profile.


    • Compact Package:4 hours of interviewing / 7,500 words – $600
