About Me

Ann Gimpel is a USA Today bestselling author. She’s also a mountaineer and vagabond at heart. She’s stood on top of some really gnarly peaks, and discovered that Zen mindfulness comes in very useful when the only other option is screaming your lungs out or curling into a fetal position because you’re too scared to do anything else.

She loves to travel. 2014 was the “Antarctica Year.” So far 2015 has been mostly writing, but that’s about to change. After two trips to the southern pole, she’s headed for the Canadian Arctic and the Northwest Passage. If she gets really, really lucky, she’ll come back with photographs of a Narwhal.

Arctic Update!! No narwhals, but Ann posted polar bear photos on her FB wall. Love to have you check them out.

A lifelong aficionado of the unusual, Ann began writing speculative fiction a few years back. Since then her short fiction has appeared in a number of webzines, magazines, and anthologies. Her longer paranormal romance and urban fantasy books are available in e-format, print, and audio. In 2014, after two dozen books with publishers, she made the leap into self-publishing. She’s loving the freedom and it’s possible she’ll never look back.
