Who are we? A professional service conceived to help you write your memoirs.

IT IS OUR FIRM BELIEF THAT EVERY LIFE DESERVES TO BE WRITTEN:
Born in France in 1964, Diane de Warren is a UCLA graduate who moved to California with her family, at the age of 15. She then worked for 20 years in the Film Marketing Industry, as a Trailer Editor, on such prestigious campaigns as Toy Story I & II, Great Expectations, Boys Don’t Cry, Cruel Intentions… She is a recipient of such awards as The Golden Trailer Award, The Key Art Award, amongst others. Her extensive experience in the Trailer Industry has well prepared her for creating this memoir business.


“The idea of “Forever Inscribed” is the result of a personal journey. Becoming a mother was a turning point in my life where I realized that I had something personal to pass on to future generations. At the same time, I admired the fact that my parents, grandparents and even great-grandparents had all written their own memoirs and there was a rich record of our family history.
I grew up infused with the exploits of my ancestors, who fought with William the Conqueror at the battle of Hasting in 1066; who descended directly from Queen Matilda of Flanders and the Plantagenet family; who invented the Montgolfier hot air balloon and even participated with great honors in both World Wars…


With the birth of my son, I was suddenly confronted with the question: what was going to be my own legacy?




I then proceeded to write my memoirs and discovered that few people were using a professional service to achieve the desired results. I studied the market, interviewed people who had used the few archaic services that exist and came to the conclusion that there was a great deal of room for improvement in this field. Coincidentally, on a family trip back to France, I realized that I had a French cousin who had started such a company and was quite successful in his endeavor. Very impressed, it confirmed my idea of ​​developing a similar company in the U.S. : A PROFESSIONAL SERVICE CONCEIVED TO HELP YOU WRITE YOUR MEMOIRS.
