About Me

Val Muller
English teacher by day, writer by night, I grew up in cold and haunted New England and have moved up and down the East Coast before finding the right balance in Northern Virginia. I have two corgis, a rambunctious and curious dog named Leia, and an kind and obedient (yet terrified) dog named Yoda. You can contact me at mercuryval [at] yahoo [dot] com. You can also find some of my works on my Amazon author page (

    Years ago I delivered mail in a rough neighborhood and, whenever a certain angry dog was on the loose, a welsh corgi would meet my jeep and guard my flank. Every single time. I never got over how wonderful she was. You couldn’t pick a better friend to write about.
