Today on our Cyber Launch Party Blog, we're celebrating the release of Ann Gimpel's debut novel PSYCHE'S PROPHECY, the first book in her Transformation Series.
Ann Gimpel is a clinical psychologist, with a Jungian bent, who practices in a very isolated area high in California's Sierra Nevada Mountains. Her avocations include mountaineering, skiing, wilderness photography and, of course, writing.
A lifelong aficionado of the unusual, she began writing speculative fiction three years ago. Since then her short fiction has appeared in a number of webzines and anthologies and she has published two novels, Psyche's Prophecy and Psyche's Search. The latter, Psyche's Search, will be released during the summer of 2011.
A husband, grown children, grandchildren and three wolf hybrids round out her family.

PSYCHE'S PROPHECY Transformation Series Book One by Ann Gimpel
Classically trained at the Jung Institute in Zurich, Doctor Lara McInnis has a special gift that helps her with her patients. Born with "the sight" she can read auras, while flirting with a somewhat elusive ability to foretell the future. Lara becomes alarmed when several of her patients - and a student or two - tell her about the same cataclysmic dream.
When she reaches out to the Institute for answers, Lara's paranormal ability sounds a sharp warning and she runs up hard against a dead end. Her search for assistance leads her to a Sidhe, and ancient Celtic rituals blaze their way into her life. Complicating the picture are: a deranged patient who's been hell-bent on destroying Lara ever since she tried to help his abused wife; a boyfriend with a long-buried secret and a society that's crumbling to dust, as shortages of everything from electricity to food escalate.
