Our Team


Joseph Friesen

Founder and Lead Writer

Joseph has lived an ordinary life, but he loves hearing about the lives of others. He was educated at the University of Windsor, where he earned a Master's degree in Social Work. During his work in the field, primarily at a homeless shelter, he took an interest in hearing about the colourful lives of his clients, and soon after began committing stories of the people he encountered to writing before founding Life and Legacy Publishing in 2019. He lives with his wife in Leamington, Ontario.
