Cheryl Smythe publishes debut novel
Ashland Creek Press is delighted to announce the publication of a mystery novel by MCAD alum Cheryl Fischer ('80). Fischer's captivating debut novel, FALLING INTO GREEN (forthcoming in May), is the first in an eco-mystery series featuring psychologist Dr. Esmeralda Green. We’re also delighted that a pilot for a TV series is currently being developed based on the characters in the book.
Here's a little about the book: When a body is found below the crumbling cliffs near Dr. Esmeralda Green’s Los Angeles home, Ez is pulled back in time to a childhood tragedy. As she begins to investigate the case, her sustainable lifestyle—from her hybrid car to her organic diet—is colliding with the man in her life, an attractive TV news reporter who drives, of all things, a Hummer. Swept into a maze of corporate corruption and family secrets, Ez finds that her intuition and psychological skills can take her only so far, and she finds herself falling deeper and deeper into danger.
And here's a little about the author: Cher Fischer is an ecopsychologist who received her doctorate in clinical psychology in 2004. She is the author, with Heather Waite, of the LA Times bestseller Moving from Fear to Courage: Transcendent Moments of Change in the Lives of Women and has long been involved in environmental issues and the green movement in the United States.
