Carol Berg is an award-winning and bestselling author of fifteen epic fantasy novels and half a dozen novellas and short stories.

She also writes the fantasy adventure series Chimera under the pen name Cate Glass. Her new book, just out, is A Conjuring of Assassins.

Though Carol's home has a great view of the Colorado Rockies, she has lived a large portion of her life in realms of mystery and adventure - Middle Earth, Camelot, Amber, Wonderland, Harry Dresden's Chicago, Jim Chee's New Mexico, Cheltenham race track or the colleges of Oxford, Victorian London, Cold War Berlin, the Welsh borderlands, River Heights, Marvel's version of Hell's Kitchen...you get the drift.

While studying mathematics and software engineering at Rice University and the University of Colorado respectively, Carol Berg carved out a special place for studies in English and History of Art and reading, reading, reading.

A few years into a career as a software development engineer, she took up a hobby of writing her own fiction. 

Carol enjoys binge-watching movies and (well-written!) TV, as well as camping, hiking, and biking with her mechanical engineer spouse. They have three sons who juggle music and teaching, software and carpentry, rocket science and ice hockey.
