A telepath is a nightmare when you have a mind like his…
Read the finalist for the 2017 BookLife Prize and Denver Post STAFF PICK, which award-winning author and judge Tim Pratt called “a riveting tale of telepathy and suburban angst.” Derek Verbenk is a professionally ruined, morally bankrupt and reflexively snarky psychiatrist. Ethical transgressions have sentenced the once ambitious doctor to a career handing out prescriptions to rich housewives from his home office in Cherry Creek — until a new patient with a newfound power turns Verbenk’s life upside down and his soul inside out. Romping through Denver, breaking through barriers of privacy, social isolation and even politics, Transference is an odd-couple quest toward redemption full of wicked humor and radical honesty.
About the Author:
Kate Jonuska is a Colorado native with a B.A. in creative writing from the University of Denver who went into journalism after college to pay the rent.

Her passion, however, has always been for fiction and she’s seen success in that arena, as well.

While Facebook is all fine and good, you can keep up with Kate best on Twitter: @kjonuska. When her nose isn’t buried in a book, you’ll find her in the kitchen or in the yoga studio. Namaste, bitches.
