Carol Berg is the bestselling author of fifteen epic fantasy novels and half a dozen novellas and short stories. Carol also writes as Cate Glass, the author of the fantasy adventure series Chimera. Carol resides at the foot of the Colorado Rockies, but 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, Victorian London, Cold War Berlin, the Welsh borderlands, River Heights, Marvel's version of Hell's Kitchen...you get the drift. Carol studied mathematics and software engineering at Rice University and the University of Colorado respectively. A few years into a career as a software development engineer, she took up a hobby of writing her own fiction. Many manuscripts later Carol (as Cate) is deep into the stories of the Chimera. Between them, Carol and Cate have won four Colorado Book Awards, the Mythopoeic Fantasy Award, and numerous other honors. Carol and her mechanical engineer spouse have three sons who juggle music and teaching, software and carpentry, rocket science and ice hockey. Cate’s third Chimera adventure, A Summoning of Demons, will be released in February 2021.
