A professional writer with a fondness for history, Janet Ogle-Mater writes corporate histories, life stories (memoirs and biographies), and articles on the topic of history. She has written for newspaper, regional, online, and custom publications, and authored two books: Chelsea’s 175th Anniversary: 1834-2009 and A Short History of Chelsea, 4th Revision. 


Janet is at her best writing the stories of companies, organizations, communities, people, and families. She creates informative, well-researched, and personal narratives that engages readers. She will work with you to chronicle the story you want remembered, completing only a manuscript or assisting you in producing an attractively bound heirloom book.


Janet also creates special tribute books for retirements, engagements, weddings, and anniversaries. She enjoys capturing stories of relationships, both new and enduring, so they can be shared and appreciated by many.


Janet has spent twenty years writing the personal stories of others, and would be delighted to do the same for you. If you want to preserve your company's history; or record your life story; or are in need of a freelance history writer,  contact Janet.
