A native of Iceland, Solveig Eggerz published her first novel, Seal Woman, in 2008 with Ghost Road Press. In 2011 it was published in Icelandic and was nominated by the literary society Krummi for the Red Crow Feather Award for “most interesting descriptions of sex.” As a manuscript, Seal Woman won first prize for fiction from the Maryland Writers Association. In 2009 it was an Eric Hoffer finalist. Book groups ask—is it autobiographical?

It’s not.

Solveig, who earned a PhD in Comparative Literature (English, German, and Nordic) from Catholic University, teaches creative writing in the Washington D.C. area. For five years she taught research and writing at colleges including five years in a master’s program for the Department of Defense. Her father, Petur Eggerz, was a best-selling author in Iceland.

Her second work of historical fiction (1900-1944), Curve of the Earth, will be published in 2013. A chapter from that book, “Midwife,” won first prize in the 2009 statewide Virginia Golden Nib contest. The manuscript of the novel was a semi-finalist in the 2012 William Faulkner-William Wisdom Creative Writing Competition. Her writings appear in The Northern Virginia Review, Palo Alto Review, Lincoln Review, Midstream, Issues, The Journal of the Baltimore Writers Alliance, The Christian Century, and Open Windows: An Anthology.

She loves to hear from readers at solegg@verizon.net.
