Debby’s Writing Expertise
Debby Mycroft is a seasoned writer on a mission to assist families with preserving their family legacies.
She is a self-described adventurous introvert. Despite her shy, reserved nature, she loves to explore the world, meet new people and learn new things.
After graduating with a degree in Psychology from St. Andrews University, she accepted a job in Hong Kong and began her writing career. After 14 years there, she decided it was time to leave the concrete jungle and return to the States to provide a backyard with greenery, a swing set and a puppy dog for her growing family.
Debby’s Vision and Vocation
Upon returning to the States, Debby opened her own freelance writing business which she operated for 13 years. In 2017, she focused her writing vision and launched a new venture, Memories Worth Telling, a boutique writing house producing family history books for families who want to preserve their legacies.
This is a venture dear to her heart. Having lost her mother in December 2014, Debby is acutely aware that the loss of a loved one is greater than the loss of an individual, it is a loss of family history, traditions and memories, and even fragments of oneself. Through Memories Worth Telling, she strives to preserve family histories knowing that they will provide future generations with valuable insights and strength.
Debby’s experience living overseas and interacting with many different cultures, coupled with a degree in Psychology, excellent writing skills, empathy, and perfectionism all come together in her vocation: preserving legacies.
Memories Worth Telling has developed a system to efficiently gather an individual’s memories through carefully crafted interviews, extract the deeper meaning and tell their stories in a broader family context, capturing their ancestral lineage, cultural heritage, faith traditions, holiday celebrations and crazy unforgettable quirks.
In Her “Free” Time
When not lost in writing, Debby treasures time spent with her children (an 18-year-old son and a 13-year-old daughter), her pets (4 cats and 3 dogs, all rescues, but with full pedigree names!), crafting (just about anything involving needles and yarn), and gardening (flowers, not foods).
