Americus Dotter is the pen name for an American author and advocate for women, best known for her autobiographical thriller, Soul Sale: A Rude Awakening.

Biography[edit]

Dotter was an ovum donor for many fertility clinics across the United States including Yale University, and helped many couples achieve their goal of creating a family. Stem cell research and the ethics surrounding it are one of her primary concerns. Her book, Soul Sale, is the raw story of spiritual warfare that she experienced in 2008 following the birth of her own child. It is an example of "quantum psychiatry," a term that is gaining popularity and support in the psychiatric community. Quantum psychiatry is thought to be where spirituality and science meet to expose unproven realities. In a time where the transhuman agenda is beginning to appear in headlines, the ethics surrounding stem cell research must be discussed and unintended consequences of our knowledge should be examined. Amy Dotter successfully sheds light on these issues in a creative true story not like any ever heard before.[1]

She was interviewed for the documentary film Eggsploitation, discussing her story and the idea that "the fertility industry has a dirty little secret." [2]

Americus Dotter invites the reader feel some of the pain of psychosis, in a tale weaved from her real life experiences. The book explores the issue from several perspectives. She offers stark implications for bioethics. Elements of fantasy and reality are weaved to give readers an inside look at one woman's remarkable journey. And while the darkness is spelled out, the book also offers inspiration for women, in the end.[3]
