Jay Shepherd

Jay's first book, Firing at Will: A Manager's Guide (Apress/Springer, 2011), is a plain-English guide to dealing with problem employees with an eye to avoiding (or winning) litigation. The book draws from Jay's 17 years of protecting companies in and out of court.

Jay began blogging in 2006 with his human-resources-related site, Gruntled Employees. In 2008, he started The Client Revolution, covering innovations in pricing and business models for lawyers and other professionals. In 2011, he wrote a column on lawyering for the world's most popular law blog, Above the Law. And in 2013, he launched Narrative Hat, a blog for writers and professionals who use words.

Jay now spends much of his time writing legal thrillers. Trade Secrets, the first novel in the "Warren Archer, Prevestigator" series, is coming soon, followed by Phantom Gold and Dire Strait.
