Search - List of Books by Lowell Cauffiel

Lowell Cauffiel, born in Michigan, USA, is an American writer and TV producer.

An award-winning reporter with the Detroit News and Detroit Monthly Magazine in the 1970s and 1980s, Cauffiel began his bookwriting career in 1988 with Masquerade: A True Story of Seduction, Compulsion and Murder. That title and his 1997 New York Times bestseller House of Secrets have appeared on many critics' lists of the best works in American true crime. As a nonfiction author, he's known for his meticulous research and accuracy, delivered in novel-like, page-turner style. Thematically, Cauffiel's books often explore how people embrace popular trends and exalt American values to hide their dark intentions and destructive acts.

In the mid 1990s, Cauffiel also turned his attention to crime novels, publishing three fiction titles. He credits the off-beat humor and high-contrast scenes found in his fiction to his years spent as a reporter in the volatile streets of Detroit and the many years he worked as a blues guitarist with the Progressive Blues Band in Motor City nightclubs.

Listed among the admirers of Cauffiel's works are acclaimed best-selling authors Jack Olsen, Gay Talese, Ann Rule and Elmore Leonard.

In 2002, Cauffiel began writing and producing crime documentaries. A long-time Michiganian, in 2003 he relocated to Los Angeles to draw on his diverse experiences as a journalist and create series television.

Cauffiel is an avid surfer and motorcyclist. He's also worked in alcohol and drug rehabilitation circles as a volunteer and headed a research grant about alcohol problems among young people for the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAA) for the National Institutes of Health.

He is the father of actress Jessica Cauffiel.
