But the author isn't backing down. She writes that she was personally in the office of another top church executive when he received a call from Miscavige.

Scientology is increasingly under attack by former members like author Scobee. There have been several high-profile defections of late, and CNN's Anderson Cooper recently aired a five-part investigation on the church.
