Winner, 2016 Sir Julius Vogel Award, Best Youth Novel for Dragons Realm.
Eileen Mueller lives in New Zealand, on the side of a hill, with four dragonets and a shape-shifter.
In 2014 & 2015, she had fun organizing Wellington’s Storylines Family Day for thousands of kids – a festival bringing books alive through performances, crafts, and fun activities with 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!
As well as her Sir Julius Vogel Award, Eileen won SpecFicNZ’s Going Global and the New Zealand Society of Authors’ NorthWrite Collaboration literary awards and is a New Zealander of the Year Local Hero medalist.
