Life & Other Stories is a historical research and writing service run by former documentary producer Sam Brown.

Sam is passionate about uncovering the stories of people who have long been forgotten, but whose voices and lives are preserved in the archives. Her academic and genealogical training mean she can conduct research of the highest standards, while her background in television means she can identify themes, characters and evidence that bring the past to life, injecting authenticity into historical fiction from any era.

Whether you are planning a novel, developing a television series, writing a play, or researching your own family history, she would love to help.
