Anne Middleton launched her personal histories business, Your Life Tales, in 2011 after a 40-year career in journalism, public relations, fundraising and teaching.
A certified Guided Autobiography (GAB) instructor since 2011, Anne teaches introductory and advanced Guided Autobiography/Life Storybook workshops at private homes in San Diego (winter/spring) and north Lake Tahoe (summer/fall). In earlier years, she taught GAB workshops at community centers in La Jolla, CA, and Laguna Woods (Orange County), CA.
After obtaining a master’s degree in journalism from Northwestern University’s Medill School of Journalism in 1987, Anne worked for several years as a newspaper reporter. Throughout her varied careers, Anne’s strongest passion was getting to know and write about other people's lives. Thus it was a natural transition for her in retirement to help others to write their life stories.
