 As a published author, I empathize with my clients both from the  creative and legal/business aspects.  Writing a book, no matter what  context or topic, is a labor of love which takes painstaking commitment,  organizational skills, and imagination. In the new media era,  interactive rights present new issues and I’ve found my background in  music and IP extremely helpful.  It’s also amazing that clients can now  self publish with ease and pursue independent opportunities with the  exploitation of electronic publishing rights.
