Our daughter Kelly and son-in-law Brian were so pleased with their (wedding) memory book as were we!

Thank you for the personal touch you gave in completing it. I plan to show others. It is really one of a kind.

Carl truly helped bring our project to life. He did an amazing job interviewing and researching to produce the countless stories you read throughout Lake Sara: The Hidden Jewel in America’s Heartland. Winding together all of the history, storied accounts, and newspaper clippings into words on the page was quite the feat and Carl mastered it beautifully.

We received a family memory book from our children and grandchildren for Christmas this past year which was compiled by Carl Walworth. When reading it and enjoying the pictures, it is like reliving all the wonderful memories our family has created over the years. It is a book to treasure and share with our family and friends.
Dick and Regina Considine (one of our clients)
Carl brings to your kitchen much more than an appetite for food, it is a real urge to write the story and do so with accuracy. He made me feel comfortable and confident in his professional manner of taking care of business. He was punctual with our meetings and well prepared with questions which made the interviews go smoothly. His judgment was impeccable to what should be included in the book.
