About Us

Patrick “Sonny” Dean was a Philadelphia grandfather, deacon, and veteran full of history and insight. He often told stories in response to any question. He could recall the 1940’s, summers in the South, and memories of his parents like it was yesterday. The limit of oral storytelling is that stories often die with the storyteller. Before passing in 2017, Sonny often said to his grand-daughter, “someone should write a story about…” Because she never got to capture his stories in writing, she created a platform for others to capture theirs in honor of his memory. The Sonny Dean Publishing Team is here to help you capture the story that “someone should write.” You are that someone. It’s time to write and share your story.

Welcome! Our published and experienced team is here to help.
