Schaeffer was the CARE Deputy Regional Manager for Latin American Operations at the time of the crash. The author is currently the Director of a democratic initiatives project in Bolivia.

Escape With One's Life-Learning to Live With Survival is Schaeffer's first book.

It was published and presented in La Paz, Bolivia in Spanish in December 2005 and has sold very well in a non-literary market. The Spanish version of 'Escape' is being marketed in Central America and eventually to the Hispanic population in the United States.
