Imran Ahmad – Co-Founder
Write Your Family Story was founded by Imran Ahmad as an online resource to help people write their family stories, or record them in audio and video formats. In 2011, Imran began recording his Grandmother’s stories in audio, capturing her unique voice and storytelling style. It still is a meaningful and beautiful thing to listen to all these years later. (Read his blog post about this experience HERE.)
He is also a professional musician and has recently released his debut music album called HOME (Click HERE to listen).
Michael Oke – Co-Founder
Mike is the founder of Bound Biographies. The story started in 1991 when he saw an article about a young man helping his grandfather to write his life story. Mike loved the idea and placed an advertisement in a local newspaper. Roy Barton, a retired headmaster from Burghfield Common, near Reading, got in touch and the two met up. Encouraged by his son, Roy had written dozens of pages about his early life and wanted help in turning it into a book.
Having now personally assisted with over 300 books, Mike is recognised as a leading authority on the writing of private life stories.
Mike lectures in the UK and US and has appeared widely in the media.
