I was a member of ISKCON, the Hare Krishnas, from 1978-1988, then wrote a book about my experiences. Betrayal of the Spirit came out in 1997, published by the University of Illinois Press, and became the best seller in its category on Amazon.com.
Since that time, I have written two additional books for cult survivors, and have been a guest speaker at ex-cult conferences, and have published many articles on the subject.
