Eileen Mueller lives in New Zealand, on the side of a hill, with her four dragonets.
She has lots of fun organizing Wellington’s Storylines Family Day for thousands of kids – a festival bringing books alive through fun, crafts, and activities, with crazy kiwi authors and illustrators.
In her spare time, Eileen sings in a barbershop chorus, plants trees with school kids, and juggles her dragonets – usually without dropping them!
Eileen won the 2013 SpecFicNZ (Speculative Fiction of New Zealand) Going Global contest and was also placed first equal in the 2013 NorthWrite Collaborative Competition. Her work has been short-listed for the Sir Julius Vogel Awards.
In 2013, Eileen was awarded a New Zealander of the Year Local Hero medal for her community service in promoting English literacy among Fijian school children by collecting 45,000 books for kids in Fiji, with her 'Books For Fiji' project. Eileen writes children's and young adult fantasy novels.
Dragons Realm is her first children’s novel. More are coming soon. You can sign up for her reader’s list at her blog: http://www.eileenmuellerauthor.com/
