Who We Are
Munchausen Support was created in collaboration with some of the country’s top Munchausen by Proxy experts, all of whom serve on the American Professional Society on the Abuse of Children’s interdisciplinary Munchausen by Proxy Committee.
Andrea Dunlop was inspired to work on Munchausen by Proxy awareness after a member of her family was investigated for abuse, an event which changed the course of her life and inspired her 2019 novel We Came Here to Forget. While doing press for her book, she met Dr. Marc Feldman and later joined the APSAC’s MBP Committee.
She is the author of two previous novels: Losing the Light (2016; Washington Square press), and She Regrets Nothing (2018; Atria/Simon&Schuster). Her books have been featured in Town & Country, Bustle, InStyle, US Weekly, Vanity Fair, People Magazine and elsewhere. She lives with her husband and daughter in Seattle, WA.
