William Todd Schultz is professor of psychology at Pacific University. His most recent book is Torment Saint: The Life of Elliott Smith. He has written two full-length psychobiographies, Tiny Terror: Why Truman Capote (Almost) Wrote Answered Prayers and An Emergency in Slow Motion: The Inner Life of Diane Arbus. In 2005 Schultz edited the groundbreaking Handbook of Psychobiography for Oxford University Press. He presently curates and edits the Oxford series “Inner Lives.” He’s written for The Spectator, Slate, Salon, and Huffington Post. In 2015 he was awarded the Erikson Institute Prize for Mental Health Media.
