Leading expert on death, dying—Cole Imperi—signs with The Rights Factory for literary representation
CINCINNATI—Toronto-based literary agency The Rights Factory has announced its newest author, Cincinnati-based Cole Imperi. Imperi is a dual-certified Thanatologist and one of America’s leading experts on death, dying and grief. As a writer, podcast host, and public speaker, Imperi is enthusiastically changing the way we approach death and dying in the United States, and coaches businesses, corporations and individuals how to live a brighter life by embracing the light of loss.
“As Cole told me about Shadowloss, I became really excited,” said Sam Hiyate, President and Literary Agent representing Imperi. “The prospect of overcoming personal losses and turning them into new hope for the future is going to be massively inspirational and transformational to anyone looking for self-help or self-improvement.”

“Changing the way we deal with and approach loss is my mission,” said Cole Imperi. “Mr. Hiyate has become an invaluable champion of my work and steward for this work. I look forward to getting my message in front of more people.”
