carol's bio, the short version

Carol Berg Although Carol Berg majored in mathematics at Rice University, so she wouldn't have to write papers, she took every English course that listed novels on the syllabus, just so she would have time to keep reading. And 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." The game quickly got out of hand. Since TRANSFORMATION was published in 2000, Carol's fourteen epic fantasy novels have earned national and international acclaim, including the Geffen Award, the Prism Award, multiple Colorado Book Awards, and the 2009 Mythopoeic Fantasy Award for Adult Literature. She lives in Colorado at the foot of the Rocky Mountains. She calls her most recent series, the novels of the Collegia Magica (THE SPIRIT LENS, THE SOUL MIRROR, and THE DAEMON PRISM, Roc Books), a "double-agent murder mystery set in a renaissance-style world where science is marginalizing failing magic." New in 2014 is DUST AND LIGHT the first of two novels of Sanctuary - the story of a magically gifted portrait artist whose life falls apart around him until his portraits of the dead show things he couldn't possibly know.
