about the queen of dragons
C.D. Muller (Crystal Dawn Muller) was born on December 9th, 1990 at St. Mary's Hospital in Rogers, Arkansas. She grew up in Tucson, AZ, and Sonoita, AZ.
She is the biological daughter of Eric and Vicki Muller. However, she was adopted and raised by her grandparents, Robert and Marianne Muller. Crystal is the oldest out of four: a younger brother named Jonathan, and two younger sisters named Megan and Ashlee.
While still with their biological parents, Crystal and her siblings were abused physically and emotionally. Her birth mother passed away from liver failure in August of 2018.
Crystal always wanted to be a writer from an early age. She wrote her first book at six—it was about her dog named Heidi. When she was twelve, she developed a love for reading. From her love of the Harry Potter series, she started coming up with ideas for The Armageddon Trilogy.
She spent most of her time in high school on the computer. Her after school activities were focused on telling Selena's and Thor's story. She attended college, where she studied Computer Science and programming.
Over the next fourteen years, she carefully mapped out the rest of the trilogy. She wrote most of her notes by hand, and even on her hands. She originally published Dawn of the Dragon as The Sorcerer's Dragon through Whiskey Creek Press in 2014. Not even a year later, the contract was signed over to Start Publishing.
On January 22nd, 2018, Crystal received all rights back, and thus re-packaged and self-published it as The Necromancer's Dragon a few months after through Amazon KDP. Taking her notes wherever she went, she moved to Tucson, AZ where she married Richard C. Olson III on February 25th, 2018 at the age of 27. However, her husband passed away on June 12th, 2019.
Crystal suffered from depression and anxiety attacks after the loss of both her mother and husband. She almost gave up on her writing and art, but ended up using her talents to help her cope. Later that year, on 09/01/2019, her first book was renamed to Dawn of the Dragon . The second book in the trilogy, Empire of Blood, was also published that same year. Upon release, Empire of Blood was #1 in new releases for Juvenile Steampunk in the first week. Book 3, Armageddon, is currently in the works and is set to be released sometime in September of 2021.
C.D. Muller currently lives in Tucson, AZ with her three cats.
