AUTHOR

Cameron Stauth

Cameron Stauth is an American author who has written 26 books that focus primarily on medicine, and on narrative nonfiction accounts of true stories. A former magazine editor and columnist, several of Stauth's books, including Brain Longevity and The Manhunter, have been national and international bestsellers, and his books have been published in nine languages and 21 countries. The New York Times Review of Books has called him "a talented and graceful writer, and a tireless reporter." His most recent book, In the Name of God, to be published October 15, 2013, by St. Martin's Press, is the true story of America's most deadly church, in which almost one hundred children have died due to medical neglect by parents who believed only in faith healing. New York Times bestselling author Lisa Pulitzer has called the book "powerful, moving, and painstakingly researched," and Susan Ray Schmidt, author of Favorite Wife: Escape from Polygmany, has written that the book is "a breathtaking masterpiece." He is now working on an expose of gay reparative therapy.
