Carol Berg majored in mathematics at Rice University, in part so she wouldn't have to write papers. But she took every English course that listed novels on the syllabus, just so she would have time to keep reading. It was her college roommate who shared a dog-eared copy of Tolkien and a love for fantasy that changed Carol's life . . . eventually. Somewhere in the midst of raising three sons, earning another degree - this time in computer science - and a software engineering career, another friend teased her into exchanging letters written "in character." Once started writing fiction, she couldn't stop.
Carol's fifteen epic fantasy novels have earned national and international acclaim, including the Geffen Award, the Prism Award, multiple Colorado Book Awards, and the Mythopoeic Fantasy Award for Adult Literature. She has been twice voted the Rocky Mountain Fiction Writers Writer of the Year.
In the past few years, Carol has been experimenting with a new form of fiction (for her) known as short fiction. She has stories in Pulp Literature magazine, and the anthologies Elemental Magic, Broken Links Mended Lives, Blackguards, Hath No Fury (2017), and Lace and Blade (2018). She lives in Colorado at the foot of the Rocky Mountains with her Exceptional Spouse.
