Andersen learned about sociopaths the hard way--by marrying one. In two-and-a-half years, her husband defrauded her of $227,000, cheated on her with at least six women, fathered a child with one of them, and then, 10 days after Andersen left him, married the mother of the child. It was the second time he committed bigamy. She tells the whole outrageous story in her first book, Love Fraud - How marriage to a sociopath fulfilled my spiritual plan.
This man had no conscience, no empathy and lied prolifically--which Andersen discovered, far too late, were the cardinal signs of a sociopath. In 2005, Andersen launched Lovefraud.com to educate the public about this destructive personality disorder.
Lovefraud.com now receives almost 3,000 visits every day, and is considered the best source on the Internet about relationships with sociopaths. Andersen has collected more than 3,800 cases of people targeted by sociopaths, and the Lovefraud blog has evolved into a healing community of survivors. Andersen receives many e-mails from people who thank Lovefraud for saving their lives.
Andersen has worked as a freelance copywriter since 1983, and was the original editor of Atlantic City Magazine from 1978 to 1982. She graduated summa cum laude from the Syracuse University's S. I. Newhouse School of Public Communications in 1978. While at college she co-founded a student magazine and worked at the student newspaper, the Daily Orange.
