About Me

Ann Gimpel is a mountaineer at heart. Recently retired from a long career as a psychologist, she remembers many hours at her desk where her body may have been stuck inside four walls, but her soul was planning yet one more trip to the backcountry. Around the turn of the last century (that would be 2000, not 1900!), she managed to finagle moving to the Eastern Sierra, a mecca for those in love with the mountains. It was during long backcountry treks that Ann's writing evolved. Unlike some who see the backcountry as an excuse to drag friends and relatives along, Ann prefers solitude. Stories always ran around in her head on those journeys, sometimes as a hedge against abject terror when challenging conditions made her fear for her life, sometimes for company. Eventually, she returned from a trip and sat down at the computer. Three months later, a five hundred page novel emerged. It wasn't very good, but it was a beginning. And she learned a lot between writing that novel and its sequel.

Around that time, a friend suggested she try her hand at short stories. It didn't take long before that first story found its way into print and they've been accepted pretty regularly since then. Urban fantasy novels soon followed. One of Ann's passions has always been ecology, so her tales often have a green twist and the Transformation Series is no exception.

Paranormal romance blends Ann's interest in fantasy with her long-standing love for romance. She has many novels either already out or to be released soon by Liquid Silver Books, Hartwood, and Musa Publishing. And she recently dipped her toes into self publishing.
