A note from the author...
I am a freelance medical writer in the Washington, DC, area. Although I am
listed as a "contributor" to the ASRM Complete Guide to Fertility, I
am actually the author. My extensive background in women's health and patient
education led to my being asked to research and write this book for people who
are struggling with the many issues surrounding fertility and infertility. (My
contractual agreement with the book's developer, the Philip Lief Group, was that
Drs. Carson and Casson would be listed as "authors," with my name
following. This is not all that unusual in my line of work.) I have written
many, many book chapters, pamphlets, and other materials for women patients, but
this is my first full-length book. Working on commission as I do, and
relinquishing the copyright of my work as I do under a "work-for-hire"
agreement, what ends up in print does not always resemble what I first wrote.
Nor does my name often appear on my work. But I am happy to say that I am proud
to be associated with this particular volume. I was lucky to have a wonderful
editor at PLG and gratified to see my words appear in print almost exactly as I
had originally written them. I hope that the book helps people struggling with
this issue to make the difficult decisions they'll no doubt face as they
confront the challenges of having children.
