Cash Peters is the author of eleven books, including four travel memoirs.
His first, Gullible’s Travels, following his visits to the worst, tackiest, and kitchiest museums and tours in the world, was published in 2003 and won the Benjamin Franklin Award for Humor. It’s available here. Scroll down the seller list to Penner Inc. for a brand new copy signed by the author and dedicated specifically to you.
The second, Naked in Dangerous Places, tells of the time he spent making his TV series for Travel Channel, in which he flew around the world to 32 countries, doing so without money, food, or a place to stay. It’s available here. Watch a mini-documentary about it here.
Then in 2011 came a HUGE and important departure. His third travel book, and without doubt his most successful to-date.
It’s called a little book about believing: The Transformative Healing Power of Faith, Love, and Surrender, which you can buy in paperback and in Kindle format here. Also available as an iBook.
This gripping and very moving book has a foreword by Dr. Jeffrey Rediger, a leading doctor at Harvard Medical School. It follows 24 people on a trip to Brazil to undergo treatment from renowned faith healer John of God. The two weeks that follow are a time of epiphanies, physical breakthroughs, miracles, and spiritual awakenings that change their lives forever, including the author’s. The story is uplifting and enlightening in ways you wouldn’t expect; packed with wisdom, invaluable life lessons, guidance, as well as information about healing and helping prevent disease, information that someday could save your life or the life of someone you love.

And there’s an article about the impact of the book on the Patheos website, here.
His first was published in 2012. Called Force of Habit: Sister Madeleine Investigates, it follows the adventures of a cloistered nun with a grim and murky past, who emerges from seclusion in the convent where she’s been living for the past forty years, to investigate why some of her former comrades and friends are being murdered. It’s really entertaining, fast-paced, filled with intrigue and neat twists you won’t see coming. You’re going to LOVE it.

The second novel is a cozy mystery set in Chillingley Village. It’s published by those darling people at Penner Press, and is called Horror at Horsfield Lodge. Available HERE.
When two dead bodies are discovered in the old dilapidated gatehouse on the Horsfield estate, not only does it spark fear and panic throughout Chillingley village, but it sets off a chain reaction of suspicion. Who in such a cozy rural backwater, where everyone knows everyone else’s business, could possibly have been driven to murder, and why? As more bodies pile up, and as detectives flounder in their efforts to stop the crime wave and track down those responsible, a plucky band of local heroes embarks on their own perilous mission to solve the mystery at Horsfield Lodge.
With his usual witty observations about life and people, Cash takes the reader down the Rhone River in Provence for an eight-day epicurean adventure, not only exploring French food and wines, but stopping in at Arles, where Vincent Van Gogh lived and painted, and also Avignon, Viviers, and Lyon. It’s a five-star trip with some interesting twists, not the least of which is one of the other passengers threatening to slap him and the captain leaving halfway through the cruise and driving away in a cab.
Also new in 2014 and available as a paperback and ebook, Cash’s second spiritual book, called Why Your Life Matters. Thirteen years in the writing, and assembling in one place all the wisdom and insight gathered on his world adventures as a travel writer, it answers all of life’s most pressing questions, doing so in an enlightening, captivating way. Why are we here? How do we find our purpose? Who or what is God? What is the secret to a harmonious, fulfilling, and prosperous life?
These and so many more are explained in this wonderful little story of a regular guy whose world is turned upside down after he receives a visit from a mysterious stranger.
And finally, the very latest, Taming the Beast Within, an exploration of the ghastly condition called a Candida Overgrowth (or yeast infection), which has been linked to over a hundred common ailments and diseases, including cancer, M.S., allergies, Crohn’s Disease, and acne. It’s a stunning read, illustrated with photographs.
