Carleen Brice's debut novel, Orange Mint and Honey, is the basis for the NAACP Image Award-winning Lifetime TV movie "Sins of the Mother" starring Jill Scott and Nicole Beharie. Orange Mint and Honey was also an Essence "Recommended Read" and a Target "Bookmarked Breakout Book." For this book, she won the 2009 First Novelist Award from the Black Caucus of the American Library Association and the 2008 Break Out Author Award at the African American Literary Awards Show. 

Booklist Online called her second novel, Children of the Waters (One World/Ballantine), a book about race, love and family, "a compelling read, difficult to put down." Essence said of it, "Brice has a new hit."

Carleen is also the author of two nonfiction books, Lead Me Home: An African American’s Guide Through the Grief Journey, and Walk Tall: Affirmations for People of Color, which sold 100,000 copies. She edited and contributed to Age Ain’t Nothing But a Number: Black Women Explore Midlife. She has written for The Washington Post, The Denver Post, The Chicago Tribune, Poets and Writers, and Mademoiselle. She currently is marketing content manager at the Denver Art Museum.
