About Me

Welcome, and hello!

My name is Lorelei Savaryn. I am a writer, and my stories usually focus on the atmospheric and creepy, but always with a pulse of hope. I am represented by Chloe Seager at Madeleine Milburn Literary, TV & Film Agency in London.

My debut novel, THE CIRCUS OF STOLEN DREAMS, released in 2020: Twelve-year-old Andrea must rescue her brother from the nightmarish Sandman, who has trapped him in a circus built out of children’s dreams—and nightmares.

My second book, THE EDGE OF IN BETWEEN, will release in April 2022. It’s a creepy, magical retelling of THE SECRET GARDEN, complete with a forlorn estate in a land full of ghosts, a girl turned gray from sorrow, and a doorless garden encased in ice. I can’t wait to share this story with you.

My third book, THE NIGHT TRAIN, will release in 2023. It’s about a family who is renovating a house right next to the site of a historic, tragic train crash. It will be full of ghosts and secrets, and I’ll share more as time goes on!

These are my people.

My husband and I reside in northern Illinois with our growing family. We enjoy game nights, going on walks, family movie nights, and pretty much anything where we can spend time together.

I have a M.A. in Education and used to be a classroom teacher. My last few years in education were spent as an instructional coach, where I had the priviledge to support teachers’ professional learning on an individual and staff-wide level.

I’m an INFJ and have a not-so-secret past in improvisational comedy, which means I’m pretty good on my feet in awkward situations!

Besides writing, I enjoy playing piano, reading, doing escape rooms, puzzles, ice cream, chocolate, singing, and finding new funny or suspenseful shows to watch with my husband after the kids have gone to bed.
