Carol Berg

Carol Berg

Carol Berg is the award-winning author of fifteen epic fantasy novels comprising five seres. Carol always detested writing papers, but while earning her mathematics degree at Rice University, she took every English course that listed novels on the syllabus, just so she would have time to keep reading. Somewhere in the midst of raising three sons, earning a computer science degree at the University of Colorado, and pursuing a software engineering career, a friend teased her into exchanging letters written "in character."  The game quickly got out of hand. Carol is a frequent presenter at writers' conferences and fantasy/science fiction conventions. Her novels have earned national and international awards, such as the Geffen, the Prism, and multiple Colorado Book Awards. Her Lighthouse Duet, Flesh and Spirit and Breath and Bone, won the Mythopoeic Fantasy Award for Adult Literature.  She lives in Colorado in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains.
