Inge H. Borg was born and raised in Austria. Her early love of reading made her dream of far-away places. Encouraged by her parents, she left home at eighteen to study languages in London, Paris and Moscow. A job transfer from Vienna to Chicago led to becoming a US citizen.
After working on both coasts, Borg now lives in Arkansas where she devotes most of her time to writing.
In her five-volume "Legends of the Winged Scarab" series, she deftly switches from historical fiction in 3080 BC Ancient Egypt to its modern thriller/adventure sequels from the Arab Spring 2012 to a dystopian 2016 AD. While each volume can stand alone for its action/adventure story, some background information will necessarily be lost until the books are read in sequence.
Among several shorter books, she also wrote a non-fiction account of her volunteer time at a small animal shelter. All of Borgs books are available in print through Amazon.
Borg is a staunch supporter of her Indie-writer colleagues and often highlights the best on her two blogs:

Heart warming, entertaining and informative
"Pasha, From Animal Shelter to A Sheltered Life " by Inge H. Borg is a lovely book about one woman's experience of animals and an animal shelter, giving plenty of wonderful anecdotes about her dealings with those animals.
Borg also gives a lot of insightful advice on animal care and what to consider when planning to extend one's family by a furry creature.
Nicknamed Cat Lady by her neighbours Borg has a lot of knowledge about cats which she shares with much love and a great sense of humour.
But she has gone to the dogs and taken up dog walking in the shelter. Her chapters on the work in an animal shelter were quite an eye opener to me - and I have three grown dogs, was a regular dog walker for a local shelter myself once. And I used to have cats.
The structure of the book is nicely mixed up, not overloading us with advice or anecdotes at any given time. It felt as if Borg has done this all of her life and probably has a lot more stories to tell.
You would probably have a hard time to find an unlike-able animal lover but the warmth from these pages alone makes this a worthwhile read, but if you are considering to volunteer in a shelter or plan to have a new pet, please read this, it should give you a lot of food for thought.
