Sweet Success! Carol Berg


Carol Berg's The Soul Mirror, a novel of the Collegia Magica, won the 2012 Colorado Book Award for Genre Fiction.  She has also been named Rocky Mountain Fiction Writers' Writer of the Year. The Soul Mirror (ISBN 978-0451463746) is an adult fantasy/mystery published by New American Library/Roc Books in trade paperback and e-book (528 pages). Her website is at www.carolberg.com, and you can find her books online and in brick-and-mortar stores.

Former software engineer Carol Berg never expected to become an award-winning author, but a hobby of writing epic fantasy novels got out of hand. Her eleven novels have won the Geffen, the Prism, and multiple Colorado Book Awards, and the Mythopoeic Fantasy Award for Adult Literature. She’s taught writing in the US, Canada, Scotland, and Israel, and received reader mail from the slopes of Denali to beneath the Mediterranean. All amazing for one who majored in math and computer science to avoid writing papers. In a starred review, Publishers Weekly calls Carol’s latest novel, The Spirit Lens, “Superbly realized.”
