Inge H. Borg

Biography

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:

Smashwords Interview

You have quite a few books to your credit – historical fiction, thrillers, intrigue, poetry, humor, and even a book about a cat.
Probably like most of us, I started out being ‘earnest’ with my outpourings, mainly my poems.
Then, I discovered there was this mischievous splint in my soul and I dared to mix some lighter stuff into my writing (and if anyone asks, I will steadfastly deny that any of that stemmed from my own experiences. I will also deny that I sometimes tell a fib).
Many of your books include exotic locations and, in your historical fiction novel, faraway times. Obviously, you are a sophisticated lady who has traveled a lot and experienced much hinting of some dashes of intrigue.
Thank you for your kind words. Now that my head is bigger, i.e. swelled, I am only too happy to answer your questions.

When the flaming-orange tom was brought to the local animal shelter, he was messy. And he stank. That darn cat never took his eyes off me.

I already had two cats.
